A peaceful haven on the doorstep of Limerick city. Specialising in family visits our complex houses a deluxe spa, a well-equipped leisure centre, a variety of children’s attractions, dining options and bars while our Global Explorers Kids Club offers a range of activities designed to entertain and engage children of all ages. This ensures that we offer everything that could be required from a resort hotel, all under one roof.

The hotel is just 10 minutes from Limerick city centre and 20 minutes from Shannon Airport and offers easy access to the motorway, yet feels like a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city with its tranquil countryside setting. This ensures that the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa Limerick is the ideal base from which to explore, not only all the fun-filled family attractions that the region has to offer such as the fascinating Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, King John’s Castle, Craggaunowen, Stonehall Wildlife Farm,  but also the wonders of both the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Ancient East.

Our family bedrooms are located on the ground floor and can comfortably accommodate 2 adults and up to 3 children. Interconnecting rooms for families of up to 6 people are also available. Our child friendly services include a babysitting upon request, travel cots if required and a late check-out for sleepy snoozers. Our Super Breakfast Buffet is included with all family stays.

The Global Explorers Kids Club offers an impressive selection of fully supervised seasonal indoor and outdoor activities ranging from Meet The Animals to Water Zorbing to Hoverball Archery.

While the kids are trying out activities and making new friends, Mum and Dad have the opportunity to relax and unwind. Wander through the grounds, take a stroll on our 800m walking trail, indulge in a well-deserved treatment in the Rain Spa and Leisure Club or enjoy a hot beverage and a chat in the inviting Quench Bar.
