The multi-award winning Locke Bar sits picturesquely in the heart of Limerick City’s Medieval Quarter, where the Abbey River meets the Shannon. Its beautiful riverside setting, featuring a hugely popular outdoor seating and entertainment area, brings a unique offering to the city of Limerick.

As a gastro pub, serving food 7 days a week, it is particularly renowned for its Ocean Fresh Seafood Menu and choice of Fresh Daily Specials as well as many other dishes to suit all tastes.

The Locke Bar has a history and resonance to its premises that is a rare find anywhere in Ireland. It can be found on the original site of one of Limerick City’s oldest pubs dating back to 1724. Nearby are some of the city’s most historical landmarks such as St. Mary’s Cathedral, King John’s Castle & the Hunt Museum.

We are Limerick’s only traditional Irish music and dance venue with a lively ‘seisiún’ every night of the week!

We specifically chose Locke for the live Irish music and dance. The performers arrived late but left on time. While the two on the instruments played most of the time they were there, the one Irish dancer only got up 2-3 times to dance for portions of songs. Wasn’t very impressed.

Despite booking a table 6 weeks in advance & reconfirming a couple of days before by text - there was no record of our booking. Shown a table off the main area, where the live music & dancing was to take place - not happy. Eventually shown a table to enjoy the atmosphere.
The food was tasty, a good range of beers & spirits.

Grilled plaise fish in lemon butter was great. Garlic potatoes were a treat. Pan sauteed sea bass special was also very moist and delicious. Sticky toffee pudding a decadent treat.

Thanks for a great meal - friendly service and lovely food. Live music and dancing just started as we were finishing up - but would be great to stick around for that too next time.
