To be completely honest, we did not go inside; however they very kindly allowed my motger and I to sit in the courtyard until our ride arrived. We never felt pressured to leave.

Fantastic place to visit, gad a guided tour, learnt alot about the Hunt family. Plenty of pottery, pictures, paintings, objects from many countries. I really liked how the museum connects with the art and design college in limerick and they show the students work. The art gallery had beautiful paints on loan from other galleries. I highly recommend a visit. More...

If I had more stars, I would give them all..... don't miss this treasure trove of a museum. We went to see the Lavery/Osborne exhibition and stayed for the free tour of the museum upstairs.... we hadn't enough time to do the entire floors or to linger but decided we are going back soon to taste this wonderful museum in all its flavours...... a worthy rival to the larger Chester Beatty in Dublin...... don't miss it, make the effort to travel if you are not in Limerick - detour and GO!!!

Si tratta di una ex collezione privata donata al comune alla morte della moglie nel 1995. Gli oggetti sono molti di più vari: su va dall'età del bronzo all'800, dalle armi all'arte. Purtroppo non sempre attribuiti con certezza gli oggetti più antichi. Da segnalare un Gauguin e un Renoir. Simpatico l'uomo al desk. More...

I'm kind of obsessed with black and white photography, so this was like crack for me. they do let you buy prints of the photos, but they want 100-200 Euros each depending on the size. More...

Die fast 2000 Stücke umfassende Sammlung im Hunt-Museum gilt nach der Ausstellung im Nationalmuseum in Dublin als bedeutendste Sammlung mittelalterlicher Kunst in Irland. Zusammengetragen hat sie der Kunsthistoriker John Hunt. Ein Muss bei einem Limerick-Besuch! More...
