Spooktacular Haunted Tours for Halloween

Dark nights provide the perfect backdrop for Limerick Civic Trust’s Haunted Halloween Tours taking place from 26 October to 4 November at the ancient Bishop’s Palace on Church Street, King’s Island, Limerick.

The crazy ghoulish tours will be held three times daily, 4pm, 5pm and 6pm by Limerick Civic Trust and their chilling friends.

Hundreds enjoyed this unnerving experience last year so additional dates have been added. The Haunted Tour is suitable for all ages and takes in the historic Bishop’s Palace building and its ancient cellars through to the old St Munchin’s graveyard. Tales of some spine-tingling characters from Limerick’s medieval quarter are also incorporated.

The evening terminates in the church with some old fashioned fun and games for young and old alike to celebrate the Samhain child in all of us. Everyone receives a certificate of completion and all children receive a goodie bag. Dressing up is encouraged!

Come join us for this creepy tour of old Limerick.

Children free, Adults €7 – limit 2 children per adult.

Dates: 26 October – 4 November 2018

Times: 4pm, 5pm & 6pm.

Book online now via Eventbrite or phone 061 313399

All proceeds will go towards the Limerick Civic Trust restoration fund. Thank you for your support!

Launch of The Carrol Collection

the-carrol-collectionLimerick Civic Trust hosted a special reception to mark the re-opening of Limerick Civic Trust Carrol Collection in its new home, Bishops’ Palace, Kings Island, Limerick on Thursday 11 June 2015.

It includes memorabilia from the Peninsular campaign, the Boer War and both World Wars and many unique family pieces, all of which have been donated by June O’Carroll Robertson, the last living descendent of the family. June’s father Major General A.G. (Tony) O’Carroll-Scott wished for the family’s collection to be returned to Ireland. (more…)
