I took my husband to Ireland for his 50th birthday and we actually happened across this lovely church as were walking Limerick when we got into town. My husband was drawn to it from the get go. We found out later that day when we returned that this was the church that my husbands dads family were all baptized and married in! It was uncanny how he was drawn there, we had no idea! We saw the priests grave that would have been the one to have given all these sacraments to his kin! I just love history and all that it holds of his family's heritage!

This is a delightful old church right in the heart of historic Limerick with the treaty stone outside its door and King John's castle within ear's church. The river Shannon flows gently (most of the time) outside its doors. Saint Munchin's is part of the history of old Limerick and here you will meet the thorough bred Limerick people so you will not be treated to any nonsense. It is a beautiful church understated in its decor and lay out blending beautifully in with the history of the area. It smells of history and a building we are all proud of. Come and see; come for quiet; come and worship. Yes do come.

A lovely antique church located in the heart of the city along the River Shannon and across the street from the Treaty Stone. I was attracted to the church as I walked past as a humble man stood in the doorway as a greeter a couple of hours before service at 11:30. Its simple and unpretentious, steeped in history and a great place to thank God on Christmas morning. Candles may be lit for .25€. There is a graveyard to visit as well.

An everyday Catholic Church steeped in history as the famous Limerick treaty stone is situated outside. Parking is difficult as it is on the corner from the river bridge and busy through road so best to parki by St Johns castle on the far side of the river and walk back. The acoustics in the church are great. Nice pub restaurant across the road on the river.

I was surprised to find St. Muchinin's and just loved the quaintness of this very old building. Was able to participate in daily Mass too. A wonderful treat.
