Discover Bruff & Lough Gur this Spring

Bruff is a beautiful town located in east County Limerick and within the beguiling landscape of the Ballyhoura mountain range. Bruff is beautifully situated on the Morning Star River with two town bridges providing access to this heritage town. Bruff is postcard perfect with its pretty streetscape and traditional shop fronts making it an idyllic Irish rural town located in the engaging visitor experience that is Ballyhoura. Bruff has a rich heritage as the town played its part in the Irish Civil War. Within easy reach of Bruff is the ancient site of Lough Gur where the expert guides at the heritage centre bring 6000 years of history to life on the shores of the lake. Take a moment to reflect at Irelands largest stone circle enroute to Lough Gur from Bruff. Bruff is the ideal location to base your holiday with welcoming accommodation options including The Old Bank and Grange Farmhouse. Discover the beauty of Bruff with Munster Vales this spring.

Spotlight on the Copper Coast

The Copper Coast is a spectacular record of the earths past linked cultural and intangible heritage and community activism. Its rocks and geosites tell the story of undersea volcanos, arid deserts and dramatic ice-ages while its human history is inextricably linked with its landscape from ancient to early modern times. The Copper Coast is named for the vast mines that once ran here during the 19th century and left an archaeological and cultural heritage. Located in a restored 19th century church, the Geopark Visitor Centre contains a local mining and environmental heritage exhibition, walking trail guides and leaflets as well as a delicious café.
