Three bridges lead to a new Limerick attraction

The Ruttle family exploring the Three Bridges walk in Limerick City.

LIMERICK City and County Council is calling on people to get a real sense of the city and enjoy spectacular views of the River Shannon along ‘The Three Bridges’ walking route.

A new map, in print and in digital format, highlights the route, which is a firm favourite with visitors and locals alike.

The 3.6km Slí na Sláinte looped walk follows a stunning route along the banks of the river, passing some of Limerick’s most iconic landmarks, striking street art and picturesque parks.

The map highlights over twenty points of interest and makes an excellent companion for those out and about on Limerick’s renowned riverside route.

It is part of Limerick City and County Council’s four-week multimedia campaign which is running from mid-January to mid-February across social, digital and print media.

The campaign also includes a specially curated Limerick ‘Walk It, Run It, Love It’ playlist, which features an eclectic array of musicians from Limerick’s vibrant music scene and makes for a spirited soundtrack for runners and walkers.

Council Head of Marketing and Communications Donn O’Sullivan described ‘The Three Bridges Walk’ as an amazing asset in the heart of Limerick City.

“Not only is it an enjoyable walk, or run, over the 3.6km, but it’s also a fantastic way to see the city on foot. The map allows those who have never done the ‘Three Bridges’ before to learn about the city and serves as a guide to those more experienced users to the wonderful history of Limerick around them”
