Limerick Theory Test Centre

Limerick Theory Test Centre Address

The location of the test centre for driver theory test candidates is:

Glenlara House,
Mount Kenneth Place,
Limerick

Directions

Car

Limerick can be accessed via both M18 and M7 motorways. There are numerous parking options nearby, however, we feel that Aviary and Steamboat Quay are the two most favourable locations.

Aviary Multi-Storey Car Park

This site is open all day, Monday-Sunday. It has a colossal 500 spaces, so there shouldn’t be any issues with finding an available space. Charges are also reasonable, with parking priced at €2 per hour. If you’re looking to spend a little time in Limerick after your test, full-day tickets can be purchased at a cost of €7 (entry after 7.00 am, exit before 7.00 pm). There are also 24-hour tickets available if planning an overnight stay, which are priced at €13 during the week, and €11 at the weekend. However, please note that the testing venue closes at 2 pm on Saturday, and doesn’t re-open until Monday morning.

Payments can be made via both cash or card, but unfortunately, this site cannot facilitate contactless transactions. Disabled parking is available.

Please be aware that this car park is located next door to the testing venue, and is therefore the best local parking option. More information about this site can be found here.

Steamboat Quay

If there are any issues with the Aviary, a short, one-minute drive will take you to the Steamboat Quay. Standard parking prices are the same as the Aviary, but 24-hour tickets are considerably cheaper, priced at €10. The Steamboat Quay car park also facilitates overnight stays, with tickets also available at a cost of €10 (entry after 6.00 pm, exit before 09.00 am).

Opening times are as follows:

  • Monday-Friday: 07.00am-10.00pm
  • Saturday: 08.00am-10.00pm
  • Sunday: 08.00am-10.00pm

Please note that this is a cash-only site. Disabled spaces are available.

To reach the venue, please head northbound up Dock Street, before turning right onto Mount Kenneth Place. The test centre will be on your right-hand side.
