If you prefer to see the sights of Limerick and get some fresh air at the same time, there are some picturesque sights to behold
while running or walking through Limerick city.
From the Absolute Hotel to the University of Limerick is a riverside pathway called the Canal Bank that is perfect for a walk or run. This 3.25km shared walkway/cycleway weaves its way through a special area of conservation, along the River Shannon from Limerick City centre to the University of Limerick campus. The route also boasts a range of outdoor fitness equipment for all to enjoy!
The route has been provided with new public lighting and CCTV cameras to improve usability into the late evenings. Seating is available at locations along the route to allow people to take a rest while admiring the beautiful surroundings. From the city centre, the route starts at the Guinness Bridge nest to the Absolute Hotel Limerick and ends at the UL Boat House.
Another route to explore is The Three Bridges Slí na Sláinte which is a 3.6km walk beginning at Arthur's Quay Park and following a stunning route along the banks of the River Shannon and passing some of Limerick's most iconic landmarks. If time is of the essence the Three Bridges route is an excellent way to get a sense of the city.
