Limerick Opera House

The 3.7acre Opera Square project will be a landmark commercial development in a regional and national context and one that will reflect Limerick’s status as a leading city in sustainability and innovation.

The 1.62hectare project is fully funded, thanks in the main to €170m funding from the European Investment Bank and the Council of Europe Development Bank loans. Project Managers have been appointed and the project is underway, with enabling and demolition works this year, ahead of construction commencing in 2022.

A transformational project for Limerick, the fully developed site will be capable of employing up to 3,000 people across a 450,000 sq ft campus accommodation. Sustainability will be at the heart of Opera Square’s design and build, with the project developed to international best practice ‘Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold’ and ‘nZEB’ standards.

A day-time employment hub, it will transform into a bustling night-time destination complete with restaurants, bars and open entertainment spaces. The design will also be entirely complementary to and protect existing important Georgian architecture.
