Limerick is the third largest cit in Ireland, located 200km southwest of Dublin City, 127km northwest of Waterford City and 100km south of Galway City. Limerick is the main service centre for the mid-west region accounting for 378,410 persons (CSO 2011). Limerick City is also home to over 20,000 students annually. Transport infrastructure in the area is strong with numerous national roads converging including N7, N20, N24 and N69. Colbert Train Station has regular direct services to Dublin serving intermediate stations such as Cork, Thurles, Templemore, Portlaoise and Kildare with additional rail links also including Ennis and Waterford. Shannon Airport is located circa 26km west of Limerick City. The Dublin Road and Castletroy area are served by numerous bus routes linking suburban and city centre locations.
The subject property is located on the N7 old Limerick/Dublin road circa 6km east of Limerick City, 2.6km from the University of Limerick, 1.8km from Castletroy Shopping Centre and 650m from Castletroy/Newtown Secondary School. The site is situated on the corner of Newtown Road on Newtown roundabout and opposite the entrance to Castletroy National Technology Park. This location is the fastest growing area in Limerick due to its high employment, good infrastructure links and general amenities. The present population is 32,500 people, 16,500 of which are students during the college year.
The property comprises a development site of circa 6.12 acres (2.47 hectares) with extensive road frontage to the main N7 Dublin/Limerick road and Newtown road. It adjoins Ashgrove housing estate and its boundaries are easily identifiable with timber fencing and hedging. The surrounding area is characterised by both modern residential estates and a number of large detached houses. We believe the site may consist of a rock bed as this would be common within the area. In general, the site is level and of regular shape.
