Overview Of The Port Of Foynes

About Foynes
Foynes is a village in County Limerick in the mid-west of Ireland, located on the southern bank of the Shannon Estuary.

The Foynes Flying Boat Museum chronicles the brief era when the famous Pan Am Clippers used Foynes as their gateway to Europe and back to the USA. It houses numerous exhibits showing the history of this era and it's impact on the town of Foynes.

Most visitors head to Limerick, around 35km away.

Places of interest include the University of Limerick, Lough Gur Visitor Centre and St Mary's Cathedral, the oldest building in Limerick.

The Hunt Museum is one of Ireland's greatest private collections of art and antiquities, dating from the Neolithic to the 20th Century.

King John's Castle is located on King's Island, next to the River Shannon. The walls, towers and fortifications remain today and the remains of a Viking settlement were uncovered during the construction of a visitor centre at the site.
