The different local produce
Muslims visiting Limerick’s Milk Market will not be able to find prayer facilities at the market. There is however one known mosque in the city of Limerick, due to the sizeable Muslim population residing in the city. Muslim tourists can therefore ask the locals to direct them to the Limerick Mosque when needed.
While Milk Market offers a variety of delicious food items, as mentioned above, Muslim visitors will have to dine on suitable seafood and vegetarian dishes since non-Halal ingredients are sure to be widely used. They will also be able to find at least one Halal restaurant in Limerick, due to its sizeable Muslim population.
