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... More

The acoustics in the church are great. Nice pub... More

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.

I have not been here yet (going there in 2017), but from my genealogical research and correspondence with local entities in Limerick I would like to add following remark: Do not confuse "St. Munchins Catholic Church" with "St. Munchins Church of Ireland". The Catholic one is on Clancy Strand, the other on the other side of the Shannon close to... More

The Church was closed but we visited the graveyard which had some very unique vaults, tombs, and headstones. It was really very interesting!

The church is closed but you can walk around the grounds and see very old graves. It is located across the way from King John's Castle.
