Last of the Summer Wine – Number One Pery Square Limerick
Yes, we are heading into autumn but fear not there are still wonderful things to enjoy during September, particularly if the weather is half decent. You can still enjoy that glass of Rosé or a Summer Pimms Cocktail without feeling guilty.
One suggestion for a ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ break is Number One Pery Square in Limerick city. Limerick doesn’t always give a big fanfare as to what’s on but if you dig a bit you will find an array of activities to whet your appetite. Here is a short list of what you could get up to in September:
- The Irish Chamber Orchestra presents a colourful programme where the kings of classical meets the kings of rock in a fabulous concert at UCH, Limerick on Thursday 15th September at 8pm.
- Limerick Civic Trust 2016 Autumn Lecture Series will take place 7th September at St Mary’s Cathedral, Limerick. This opening lecture is being given by Quentin Peel of the Financial Times with the hot topic of ‘Peripherality and Centrality in Ireland and Europe’.
- Hidden walks are a very attractive option for daytime: Arthurs Quay to the Castle; Clancy and O’Callaghan Strands; Georgian Quarter; People’s Park; a suggestion would be to take the guided walks which are provided by the Limerick City Trust.
- Also check out the Limerick Jazz Festival which takes place from 22nd to 25th September. After all music is the food of love.
- The pièce de résistance for a wonderful night out is of course An Evening with Sir Michael Parkinson on Friday, 30th September.
And the above is just for starters!! You can combine one or two of the above on a 24 or 48 hour visit to Limerick staying in the heart of Georgian Limerick in the stylish Number One Pery Square. I know for a fact that their cocktail menu is one of the best in country and they have terrific special offers – so no excuses.
