University of Limerick (UL) Social Life

UL has a great social scene. There’s a very laid-back atmosphere on campus, with most people relaxed and dressing casually during the day. The Stables is the main college bar, with pool tables, live music and plenty drinks promotions to keep thirsty students happy. There are no nightclubs on campus but the nearby Kilmurry Lodge Hotel is home to the infamous Lodge nightclub. Often described as ‘a bit of a zoo’, there’s something (and someone!) for everybody here. Students are spoiled for choice when it comes to nightclubs and bars in the city centre. Angel Lane, Icon and Costellos are among the most popular clubs during the week. For live music, make a beeline for Dolans warehouse, where most touring artists who come to Limerick play in (great pub food here too!)

Like most Universities, there’s a strong tradition of throwing formal balls for any reason. Among the biggest and most popular are the Clubs & Socs Ball and Science Ball, However, the jewel in the crown of UL’s party scene is Charity week. With lectures all but coming to a standstill for the week, the campus plays host to a week-long party, all in the name of charity. Massive parties, gigs, competitions, etc. spring up all over campus, and go on long into the night. Not to be missed!
