The University of Limerick’s campus never fails to amaze me. Rain or shine, usually rain, the landscape and buildings are absolutely stunning! What enhances the campus even more are the various pitches and fields used for hurling, rugby, and football (soccer)… look at me finally getting the hang of the Irish terminology. Anyway, the University of Limerick has phenomenal athletic facilities dispersed all throughout the campus.
I recently discovered the Pavilion, a restaurant that overlooks the hurling and rugby pitches. I walk by this building every day, but only just recently have I actually sat down and ate there. To say the least, the food was delicious! But what made it better was the ability to look out the window and watch the various matches down on the pitches. Hurling is so intriguing to me and being able to watch it pretty much whenever I want is an added plus.
The indoor and outdoor seating options at the Pavilion only adds to the atmosphere. Since it is still fairly cold, I can stay warm and dry while watching these fascinating games! But once the weather finally gets warmer, it will be a great option to sit outside, and enjoy the nice weather.
Not only does the Pavilion have great food, but also it has a great, quiet atmosphere, making it a perfect place to get some work done. This semester is in full swing, leaving me with quite the workload. Being able to go to the Pavilion to get some work done, with the occasional hurling match distraction will definitely come in handy.
