Campus Holidays are re-launched for a second year at University of Limerick

The University of Limerick has announced that it is to continue to offer its new ‘Campus Holidays’ initiative which was launched last year in a move to promote the University student villages as a great option for family holidays during the summer months.

A first for the university in 2013, Campus Holidays proved to be a success prompting a boost to tourism in the region and in particular for Campus Life Services – the subsidiary University company that manages, markets and develops the campus and its facilities for conferences, accommodation and events.

This year, Campus Holidays will be offering spacious apartments in one of UL’s charming residential villages where families and groups can avail of the campus’ many facilities and UL Sports Arena, Ireland’s largest indoor sporting complex, local flora and fauna trails, art collections, on-site restaurants and bars, concerts and events.

Families and groups can come and stay in 2/4/6 bed apartments and enjoy all the campus has to offer, while also taking in some of the many local tourist attractions such as King Johns Castle, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park and the UL activity Centre in Killaloe for the more adventurous visitor.

With Limerick City awash with arts and culture as it celebrates its status as Irish City of Culture this year, there will be no shortage of cultural events to attend throughout the summer months, while UL Sports Arena will take care of the sporting needs of all the family.

Linda Stevens, Director of Campus Life Services says, “I am very much looking forward to the second season of Campus Holidays, which was very successful last year and offered great opportunities for families and groups to spend time on a University campus. Staying on campus offers visitors the opportunity to experience all the on-campus amenities on offer and also provides a central base for those who want to travel further afield across the city and county and experience in full, all that Limerick has to offer – particularly in this special year where Limerick holds the status of City of Culture.

“We have developed a dedicated accommodation package for the national and international leisure market. Campus Holidays allows the University to showcase its excellent amenities to a new audience while allowing the creation of new revenue streams for the university.”

With UL hosting several prestigious events this year including the Special Olympics and the 10th anniversary year of the Drama League of Ireland, ‘Campus Holidays’ adds an innovative new accommodation offer to the city.
