The famous Locke Bar is a great place to start with traditional music a plenty every night.  The famous Icon or (‘DIcon’ as it is known locally) is where you will find most of Limerick revellers ending up on a night out. Newly opened House is another popular night spot for Limerick natives.  The Absolute Hotel’s reservations team will be happy to direct you to the best place when booking a hen party package.
