Fodor's Expert Review One Pery Square
1 Pery Sq., Limerick City, Co. Limerick, Ireland
One of Limerick's finest Georgian houses—a tall redbrick structure with classical cut-stone portico, overlooking leafy People's Park—has been converted into a sumptuous boutique hotel with a reputation for attentive service. The four largest bedrooms are furnished in keeping with the period, and the rest, while still spacious, have a more contemporary feel, with restful color schemes in neutral grays and cream. Tall Georgian windows illuminate the ground floor bar, with its welcoming atmosphere and menu of light dishes and lunchtime specials; afternoon tea (book in advance) can be taken in the airy first-floor, period-style drawing room, or head up to the second floor to eat in the informal Sash restaurant. The Irish Organic Spa in the vaulted basement is a popular urban retreat with candlelit treatment rooms.
