Style and Personality, at the heart of Georgian Limerick
Overlooking the handsome, tree-lined People’s Park in Limerick’s historic Georgian Quarter, No.1 Pery Square is a luxurious and intimate boutique townhouse hotel.
With 20 bedrooms, delicious food & wine in the restaurant and lounges, an innovative and polished organic spa in the basement, an interestingly stocked shop, a sweet terrace and kitchen garden, and full of personality and style throughout.
No. 1 is one of the country’s prettiest and most characterful hotels.
One of the best examples of Late Georgian Architecture in Limerick
The vision of the owner, Patricia Roberts who bought the building in 2006, is to be found everywhere at No. 1 , one of a terrace of six Georgian houses built around 1830 by the Pery Square Tontine Company.
Widely regarded as being the best example of late Georgian architecture in Limerick and probably in Ireland, No.1 is the wonderful building that wraps around the corner of this impressive terrace.
As a Grade 1 listed building, listed on the inside as well as the outside, No. 1 was fully restored in a labour of love by the owners, with all its original architectural features expertly reinstated, so guests are surrounded everywhere by the authentic history of the property.
Sash Restaurant – Wholesome Fare at No.1 Pery Square
The charming restaurant on the first floor of No. 1 Pery Square is called Sash, a reference to that most distinctive feature of these magnificent houses, the sash window – and also, maybe, a nod to the dressing-up appeal of going out to dinner!
The restaurant, with views of the surrounding Georgian streetscape, has a menu that is quietly confident and traditional, but with the same contemporary twist to be found through the rest of the property. With a focus on home cooking with an extra layer of sophistication, Sash dishes also use herbs and ingredients grown in No. 1 Pery Square’s own kitchen gardens whenever possible.
Sash and the lounges at No.1 Pery Square all have carefully selected wine lists featuring a collection of unique boutique producers & classic French bistro selections, and ranging from casual wines for relaxed evenings, to rare and hard to find bottles. The Wine & Artisan Shop at No.1 Pery Square stocks some of those great wines.

Park Room Lounge
The Park Room lounge on the ground floor of the main townhouse has an attractive bar, comfy seating and a welcoming open fire.
With an all-day menu of soups, salads, sandwiches and slates daily, the Park Room has an excellent selection of cocktails, including a special gin & tonic menu (Limerick had important historical juniper-growing connections and gin was, for the Georgians, the spirit of the age!), wines by the glass, aperitifs, digestifs and Irish & international whiskeys.
The Drawing Room
The Drawing Room on the first floor is the heart of the house with a grand old original marble fireplace where the fire is lit daily.
Afternoon Tea is served in the Drawing Room and is a real treat, and this exceptional room, with the adjoining Board Room, also makes a distinctive and exclusive setting for all kinds of private dining events, including important meetings, and gracious weddings for up to 80 guests.
