Leader -

Thu, 20/10/2022 from 10:30 - 12:30 in

Spend a morning on the Art Trail in UL. Meet at the UL Visitor Centre at The Stables, where we will begin an hour long (approx.) guided walking tour of the campus. This tour usually costs €10 per person, but we have negotiated a special reduced rate of €2 for members of U3A Limerick. After the guided walking tour, relax and chat over a cup of coffee. Then visit the art collections in The Foundation Building, both the Art Gallery on the ground floor and the Self Portrait Collection on the 3rd floor. The art collection visit is not a guided tour, and this part of the morning is free.
