Cruises Street, Limerick

Cruises Street, Limerick

Cruises Street, another main shopping street of Limerick, takes its name from the famous old Cruises Royal Hotel, a Limerick landmark since 1791. After 200 years of catering to the well-heeled and famous, the hotel was demolished and replaced with the new pedestrianized Cruises Street, which opened in 1992.

Shopping is what the area is all about. The layout of the street is plain and direct. It starts at the junction with O'Connell Street, runs north-south, and ends at Chapel Lane. At the center of Cruises Street is a small square called Quimper Square.

The Cruises Street Car Park is close to Cruises Street, William Street, and O'Connell Street. The Milk Market is minutes away on foot. Thomond Park is a 15-minute walk from Car Park. Parking is available from 7:30 am to 7:30 pm. There are at least twenty retail stores currently on Cruises Street. Cruises Street just celebrated its 25th birthday.
