Limerick’s excellent road and rail network reflects the region’s accessibility. Six national roads converge on Limerick city and its environs. Dublin is just a two hour drive by motorway, Galway is an hour, and Cork is 90 minutes. Not bad, if you consider how long a commute can take from one side of the capital to the other! Limerick is equally well served by public transportation connections. There are hourly direct bus and train services to Dublin, Cork, Galway and all of Ireland’s main urban centres.
