As far as I know the only gay bar closed a few years ago unless something opened up recently. You could contact the Limerick pride organisers and ask whats going on in terms of bars ect.

Good luck with the move, it'll take a few months to get settled and make new friends. I'll ask my limerick friends over the weekend where's good to hang out and let you know.

Well then try Strokers for a few drinks. I don't live in Limerick but I stop off every so often. I like to pop into Whites pub on one of the main streets. It has an arty/gay vibe and was recently done up. I wouldn't call it gay but I see gay couples hang out and hold hands there. They do poetry nights the odd time. Definitely worth checking out, it's pretty easy going.

Strokers. The name is suggestive of a bunch of wankers.

Whites?
Do you mean The Whitehouse Bar? Corner of O'Connell street and Glentworth street. It used to be a hangout for gays and the art crowd years ago, I think they do poetry nights now. When Eamon Gleeson sold it they tried to turn it into a place for Rugger Buggers but apparently only the buggers showed up.

Well obviously it's the same place since you just repeated what I said. They did poetry nights years ago as well. It's pretty much the same place as it was, same pics on the walks ect. It has a slightly more mixed crowd now but not a whole lot.
