The Rugby Groud Guide

Eating,Drinking & Sleeping

Club Shop           The club have a high street shop and a mobile unit to sell merchandise at the ground on match days.

 

Inside the ground:

Unlike most sporting events in Ireland, rugby benefits from licensing  laws which allow it to serve alcohol at games. Beer is served within the ground in kiosks and outside the stadium in the Bohs and Shannon bars.

 

Eating and Drinking nearby:

Thomond Park is situated in the north of the city, nestled in suburban housing estate, and a mile or so from the centre. The area lacks top class bars and restaurants.

Fans typically meet in the Shannon or Bohemian’s bar pre-game, although the Ardhu and Curragower,both within a fifteen minute walk of the stadium, have good atmospheres and are lively watering holes before and after a game.

               

               

Other Places to Eat & Drink         Limerick is a university city with a student population of around 20,000. It has also been described as a city with a town atmosphere. Don't go expecting too many bright lights. However, as well as the history and the culture there are clubs, bars and restaurants in Limerick.

                Once former Munster players retire, many set up a bar or hotel in the city. As a result there are plenty of venues that understand and cater for a rugby crowd.

                One such watering hole is The Claw at Howley's Quay, owned by Peter Clohessy,             a former Ireland and Munster prop. Fans could also head for Dolan's Bar and Restaurant on Dock Road.

                The Brazen Head Sports Bar at 103 O'Connell Street has big screen televisions and sporting memorabilia on the walls while if you want something more old-fashioned, try The Locke Bar at 3 George's Quay, one of Limerick's oldest pubs.
