"Limerick has risen from the ashes to become a thriving, energetic and dynamic city. ‘Shannon Region Conference & Sports Bureau’ is representative of that dynamism and energy." Frank McCourt, Author.
A really great event location should inspire, bring you joy in anticipation, delight in the experience and satisfaction in recollection. It should be easily accessible, have variety, offer opportunities for new and exciting experiences and it must meet exacting quality standards. Welcome to the Shannon Region!
Carved by nature, the Shannon Region boasts spectacular scenery - the awesome Cliffs of Moher; the Burren; Atlantic seascapes; miles of golden beaches and the rolling plains of the Golden Vale, whilst also offering a great riverside city experience in Limerick one of Ireland's oldest cities.
The region is dominated by water that will inspire and refresh and offers endless opportunities for entertainment which sparkles from medieval banquets in ancient castles, Irish music nights, greyhound racing, theatre, concerts, music pubs, and 'good food circle dining.
The Shannon Region has superb facilities from luxury castles on their own estates to purpose-built conference centres. It also has unique facilities for opening and closing ceremonies, gala dinners, activities, team-building and partner programmes. In addition it has some of the finest sports facilities in Europe. And, of course, all of this is easily accessible via Shannon International Airport.
The region is also a host to activities that include superb golf (over 20 courses including world-rated links courses and parkland courses); sea, game or coarse angling; horse-riding, cruising, swimming, diving, sailing, snorkeling, surfing, cycling, walking, climbing, caving and more.
