Down in South Melbourne, on the corner of Clarendon Street and Park Street, there’s a pub that’s as robust and reliable as you could wish in all respects – hospitality, food, drink, comfort. That place is The Limerick Arms Hotel, combining Irish pub tradition with the best of modern gastronomy, seven days a week. It’s become an icon in the neighbourhood thanks to its great selection of drinks and, moreover, its food. Pull up a stool and order some bar snacks or take a seat and indulge in a pub lunch or dinner with a distinctly modern Australian bent. Of course there’re plenty of live music and live sports broadcasts up on the big screens – best bet for these peak times is to reserve yourself some elbow space in advance.
The service is good, the atomosphere ok, the food great. We always have lamb ribs, which are spicy and delicious. My partner had the parma, which is huge, and I had the calamari. Would thoroughly recommend. It's not our local, we travel 15 kilometres to get there, and worth every minute of it.
The food here is great, the service friendly. Would thoroughly recommend to everyone, and believe me, I am really fussy. The lamb ribs delicious, the parma is brilliant. This is our regular lunch time spot when shopping at South Melbourne Market.
Tasty generous sized meals, good wine, very friendly service and lovely setting with open fire to top it all off. Not too busy. Would definitely recommend!
