1. If you are coming from Limerick bus/train station or Limerick City Center follow these directions...... When you arrive in limerick you will need to ask for directions to William Street. In the middle of William Street there is a shop called "Centra" where the "Eurobus" departs at 20 minutes BEFORE each hour until the last bus at 8pm. This bus is called the Eurobus - DO NOT TAKE ANY OTHER BUS!!. Ask if you are not certain. This bus costs €1.50. My home is about 5 km from the city center. You will pass the University of Limerick. After this the next Suburb is Annacotty. Ask to be let out at O'Connell's Bar at the Newtown Centre in Annacotty. My house is a half km away. Look this up on (website hidden) maps or text me to come and get you. Or... Walk in the opposite direction the bus was travelling and take the first right (15M). Walk past O'Connells bar and take the second left (80M) - (You will see a soccer pitch). Walk for 30M and take the first left and my house is a corner house 30M on the left.
2. Coming from Dublin, I suggest you take any bus (Dublin Coach or Bus Éireann) and ask to be let out at Annacotty. (First stop in Limerick)Dublin Coach costs €10 from Dublin City center and has a website for times etc. You can buy the ticket on the bus. Look at (website hidden) maps for the 1 km walk to my house. Or..... Walk DOWN the slip road in the direction the bus was travelling on the same side of the road past the large estate entrance with the iron gates on your left. Walk over the bridge (50M), take the 2nd left (50M) at which there is a statue or sculpture. Walk 50M to a small roundabout. Walk 150M to a soccer pitch and turn right. Walk along the soccer pitches (Aisling Annacotty)50M and take the first right. Walk 30M and take the first left and my house is a corner hours No. 60 Castlemara and it is on the left after 30M. All of these distances are very much guesswork.
Other Things to Note
This is a busy household and is not for those who want quietness or who wish to party.
The picture of the room on the listing was different from the room I stayed in, but that wasn't a problem because it was a great room with a comfortable bed.
Martina and her family were great! I had my first real Irish mean and let me tell you it was good!! It reminded me of holiday dinners at home! I really enjoyed chatting with the family! If you want a "home away from home" feeling this is your place!!!
A friend and I stayed in Martina's home in Limerick for the night. She and her family were very welcoming and made us feel right at home. She cooked us a top notch breakfast in the morning and even drove us to a festival that would've probably cost us a pretty penny had we gone by cab. I would definitely recommend staying at her residence for any getaway trip you may be planning to Limerick! 5 stars, absolutely!!
Martina trata de recibirte lo mejor posible en su casa, la cama es muy comóda. También te permite utilizar su cocina si lo deseas. Tienes Wifi a disposición . El colectivo 308 que te lleva al centro o a la universidad de Limerick pasa a 200 mts de su casa. Hay una galería comercial cerca: con restaurante, lavadero , farmacia y peluquería. Yo aprecié mucho el hecho de haber compartido un almuerzo con su familia. Gracias Martina, las pascualinas estaban deliciosas.
Martina is the BEST! She fetched me from the bus station and took me to a thrift store to buy some warmer clothes. (Ireland is not a warm place.) She gave me wonderful food, helped me find the bus stop, was so accommodating in every way. She took me to a football game and evening prayer. The bed was great, the neighborhood is very nice. Her house is 5 minutes walk to a bus that takes you to the center of Limerick. I can't say enough about about this great host!
Martina really welcomed me!
She is so kind and cheerful.She politely taught me the way to the bus stop. in addition to this, she picked me up from bus stop!
She talked to me about her family, her favorite things and Irish culture
I had a great time to stay there.
Thank you so much!!
