About Foynes Flying Boat Museum

It is much more than a museum and gives you a great insight into the excitement of early aviation- the glamour and luxury. Try and get the Irish Coffee demonstration.

About The Hunt Museum, Limerick

We expected to have a quick browse of the museum, however the fantastic tour guide Brendan kept us interested. We ended up staying for 2 hours listening to all the interesting stories.

Vandaleur Walled Garden, Kilrush

This walled garden is a must - it really is a little gem. It's a relatively small attraction but there are no admission fees and there is a beautiful cafe on site to sit and have a bite to eat and enjoy a coffee/ ice cream.
