Limerick Milk Market

Market Day

The Absolute Hotel is less than a five minute walk to the famous Limerick Milk Market which, thanks to the largest single-supported canopy in Ireland, reigns each weekend through rain, hail or shine. The market brings together an eclectic mix of the finest artisan foods, local fashion and arts and crafts in a wonderful, bustling atmosphere.

The Saturday Food Market is the region’s most famous market which has been operating for over 150 years. It’s a really unique market atmosphere and a source of excellent produce. The famous market is all about the people and the community of individuals from throughout the province, all who have intimate knowledge about the products they are offering to their customers. Along with almost 50 stalls and 21 shop units to tempt even the most discerning shopper, the famous Saturday Market also allows the visitor to relax, enjoy and observe the activities of the throng from the vantage of the Mezzanine floor which is located above the Food Pavilion shops and accessible by stairs and lift. Ideally in this wet climate of ours, the Milk Market is weather-proofed, housed under the cover of the big top which also serves to amplify the sounds and smells of the weekend activity.
