Leading Journal of the Irish & UK Fishing Industries

With just over six months to go until the 2023 Irish skipper Expo at the UL Sports Arena Limerick from 24th – 25th February, we are delighted to announce that we have secured special rates at two of the hotels in close proximity to the venue.

Located in the epicentre of Castletroy, and only 1.5km from the show venue, The Kilmurry Hotel offers a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for exhibitors and visitors to unwind after a productive day at the expo. This will also be the venue for the show reception which will take place in the hotel’s Cask room on Friday 24th from 7:30pm – late.

At the other side of Castletroy and with closer proximity to the city centre, is the Castletroy Hotel, which offers a range of stylish hotel and self-catering accommodation and includes a leisure centre for guests to enjoy in the evening. Again, located only 1.4km away, the Castletroy offers the perfect location for those looking to access the venue by foot.
