Limerick has quite a large number of hotels of all budgets, many in the city centre. There are a couple of other hotels fairly close to the Kilmurry and a number of Guest Houses/B&B's. For those closest to the venue search for places in Castletroy rather than Limerick first. See wikitravel for ideas.

Rumour has it Daniel O'Donnell is playing (very popular crooner) and so places are getting full quickly. --Chippy 11:52, 4 June 2008 (UTC)


If you have trouble finding any of these B&B's on the map, Andy Robinson has apparently mapped some of them (check the data tab). (Note: "Chegans" is spelt "Cregan's".) --GabrielEbner 19:00, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

The Annville Bed & Breakfast is 30 EUR per person for a twin room (40 EUR for single occupancy) and is in the same part of town as the Kilmurry Lodge. map <mumble> <grumble> can't add markers to the slippy map <mumble> It's on the curved bit of white road in the centre of your picture.

I just booked the last room in the Annville B&B. *grin* --Ivansanchez 23:08, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

The Castletroy Inn seems to be just across the road from venue, has 12 rooms and wifi. Rates 35-40€ p.P., they have single/double/triple rooms.

Has anyone actually had a sign of life from them? I sent two emails but no response. --Frederik Ramm 09:13, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
Their phone number seems to have been cut off as well. --Dankarran 10:25, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
