Into the city of Limerick today for a change of scene, a bit of a mooch, see a few sites, that sort of thing. It being a compact kind of place, Ann had directed us to the Crescent Shopping Centre on the south-west of the city, and only about a mile and half to walk in. Or of course there’s a bus, but the exercise is good, especially after yesterday’s excesses.
We headed down to the waterfront and found a little craft galley and workshops to start off with, and the helpful lady at the desk magically turned into a tourism officer and pointed out loads of places to take a look at. We did a walk along the edge of the river, a stop for lovely coffee the very pleasant Jack Monday’s Coffee House, then back cross the bridge to head past King John’s Castle, then into the Milk Market with its lovely atmosphere and all types of produce to feast on or take away. We managed to avoid both, but subsequently headed to Hook & Larder for lunch.
Heading back out of town we stopped at the rather disappointing Gallery of Art (small, uninspiring) before wandering back to the Crescent. We are off to find a campsite again tonight to recharge the batteries before once more joining the Wild Atlantic Way.
The cat? Oh, he was just looking rather at home watching the world go by. A proper Top Cat.
