Known to house one of the most notable private collections of art and antiquities in Ireland that date from the Neolithic to the 20th Century, the Hunt Museum is a must-visit for art and antique enthusiasts. Most of the collection of art and antiquities found here were collected by the well-known Hunt family.

The works of art and the Irish archaeological material
While the Hunt Museum does not have prayer facilities for Muslim visitors, the city of Limerick is known to have one mosque. Muslims visiting the Hunt Museum can therefore ask staff at the attraction to direct them to the Limerick Mosque when needed. They could also try to locate a secluded area outdoors to offer their prayers, if unable to reach the mosque in time.
The Hunt Museum does house a café. While visitors will be able to find a wide selection of delicious snacks and refreshments here, Muslims visiting the museum will have to dine on suitable seafood and vegetarian dishes, since non-Halal ingredients are sure to be use. Muslim tourists will also be able to find at least one Halal restaurant in the city of Limerick.
