We walked the streets of Limerick and came across the park, it's pretty but too many homeless people that make you a little uncomfortable but overall a nice place.

I'm not a local so I can't speak to the poor reviews by the people who do live in Limerick, but we didn't find this little park to be at all offensive. Granted we were there in the middle of the day while the sun was shining, but we just saw a clean little city center park filled with blooming daffodils, meant for walking, viewing the River Shannon and King John's Castle, and perhaps enjoying a lunch in the mid-day. We had a pleasant experience on our visit. I would recommend visiting for the gorgeous views offered by the location of the park.

This is a park - long ago it used to be a car park and before that literally a dump and before that again part of the river.

The ice rink is located here over Christmas.

This is best seen from a distance but not always comfortable if actually there because of some of the people that frequent it. Take care.

This is a crappy little park in the city. It used to have a steel fence around it but that was taken down due to it being absolutely lethal at night. By day it's fine. Theres an information office located there and arthurs quay shopping center is across the road but there really is absolutely no reason this should be a destination on anyones trip.

This park, since its inception, has been something of a disaster.

Where to even begin...

First of all, it is tiny, it is barely even a park, most of it is concrete. It's one saving feature is its location next to the Shannon where you can get great photos of the river and King Johns Castle.

Other than that there is little to nothing to recommend here.

The tourist office is a blight on the landscape, dirty and grotty looking and not to mention it being closed. It should be knocked or at least cleaned up and turned into a restaurant or something.

There isn't even a playground here for kids.

The whole thing needs to be re-thought and properly utilised. Limerick City Council should be ashamed of this farcical "park".

A meeting place for heroin addicts and drunks. And that is just during the daytime. Best viewed from a distance if you are at the tourist office or waiting for the bus.

This seldom visited park is an undiscovered jewel. Located just across the road from a major car park, it looks out across the river Shannon. See the city courthouse and King John's Castle as well as the Clare hills in the background. Enjoy full tide and the gentle swell of the waters or watch at low tide as the river races out to sea. You could well be in an idyllic rural setting yet the city centre is only yards away. Sitting in this park on a sunny day is perfect.

arthurs quay park needs to be updated, its structure is very poor and even if you were not in this locality as a tourist you would find it hard to find it, there aint good signage around the city to guide you to it. very little happening in there.
