self catering accomodation in Ireland
We are looking for self catering or BB accomodation in Limerick near the University in July.
Any suggestions?

Try We rented a house outside Killorglin for a very reasonable rate.

As you may know, most all self-catering places rent Sat.-Sat. or Sun.-Sun., so make your plans accordingly. We had a great self-catering arrangement in Doolin, and it saved us a lot of money and made for a very special experience.

thank you both for your advice.
We have to stay in Limerick in order to attend a university seminar.
Can anyone tell me the nearest lodgings to the university?

Also...try the Irish Tourist Board. They have locations here in the states...NY for one and they have an 800 number that you can call. We called a few years ago when we were planning our first trip to Ireland and they sent a great package of all kinds of places to stay including a brochure with almost 5000 listings for self catering alone. Found a beautiful 4 bedroom 2 bath place in Rossaveal (Co Galway) on 7 1/2 acres for under 300 pounds. And I got a great book with B&B listings. Just let them know what you are interested in and they will send the info you need!

I believe there is a hotel just near the universoty...the name evades me as it was booked when I went down for a family event. ALso I am sure there are loads of B&B's in Castletroy which is just near the university. Some people would rent out rooms to students during the year in their homes. I recall a few signs for B&B's check out Go Ireland or even call the university and see if they get any preferred rates on the hotel or with B&B's.
