Funny Limerick of Ireland



There was an Old Man with a beard,

Who said, ‘It is just as I feared!

Two Owls and a Hen,

Four Larks and a Wren,

Have all built their nests in my beard!

Yes that’s one limerick. Limericks are funny stuff. But wonder, what is a limerick doing on a travel blog? So, the next one is going to be more like it, and will give a hint of what I am trying to tell.

Would you believe if I were to say,

there’s a Limerick in Ireland by the bay,

picturesque and extremely charming it is,

the splendors of which is hard to miss,

I wonder at this, What else is left to say?

This city of Limerick also spans the time of the Vikings. As the shimmering River Shannon flows past by the Ireland’s fourth biggest city, a lot of visitors tread by the city when on their way from Galway to Dublin. Limerick is most revered for boasting one of the most beautiful villages nestled in the Adare Island. Typical in its look with roofs thatched, visitors find themselves winding back in time. The visitors especially find pleasure in a friendly atmosphere created by the locals and the availability of an array of options when it comes to entertainment in the form of many eateries and pubs.
