This old seat of the O’Briens, now the capital of Limerick county, a parliamentary borough and a thriving port, has a population of about 67,000, lies in a flat part of Munster 50 miles from the mouth of the Shannon.
From this place steamers sail down the Shannon to Tarbert and Kilrush, from the former of which a very agreeable tour, via Tralee, may be made to Killarney. Maviston Abbey is near.
