It’s convenient and easy to use and available in an instant mobile download to a smartphone. All the visitor has to do is purchase a 1, 2 or 3 day pass on www.discoverlimerickpass.com, download to their phones and start exploring.
The ready-made itinerary covers 14 key attractions. Some of the fantastic upcoming events and new developments at key attractions on the Discover Limerick Pass include:
- The stunning exhibition at King John’s Castle brings to life over 800 years of dramatic local history. 21st century touch-screen technology, 3D models and discovery drawers are among the exciting techniques that will connect visitors to tales of siege and warfare. The Activity Room presents a dazzling display of CGI animations and ghostly projections.
- Lunchtime concerts at St. Mary’s Cathedral will take place on November 14th at 1.15pm featuring Lorraine Galvin (soprano) and Irina Dernova (piano); and November 21st at 1:15pm featuring Eve Stafford (soprano) and Irina Dernova (piano).
- At The Hunt Museum, an interactive experiential exhibition – Night’s Candles are Burnt Out, will open on 21st September with the purpose of encouraging communities to look at how we can address the Climate Challenge. Designed to provoke conversations and action about Climate Change, the premise for the exhibition is based on Ireland’s history of effecting change for the better – namely, the development of the Hydroelectric Scheme in Ardnacrusha in 1929 just 5 years after it was proposed and the Sean Keating painting (currently on loan to the Hunt Museum) which documents the transformation of Ireland to a modern economy.
- The world’s largest flying boat museum and the home of Irish coffee in Foynes, County Limerick, Foynes Flying Boat & Maritime Museum, has re-opened to visitors after a €5 million redevelopment and expansion
