University Concert Hall (UCH) is a 1,038 seat venue situated on the University of Limerick campus. UCH was opened on September 18th, 1993, by the then Taoiseach, Mr Albert Reynolds U.S. Ambassador to Ireland, Mrs Jean Kennedy Smith. It was the first purpose built concert hall in Ireland.
UCH has hosted some of the biggest names in entertainment including Johnny Cash, James Taylor, Billy Connolly, Van Morrison, Nigel Kennedy, Leslie Garrett, Sir James Galway, Christy Moore, Sinead O’Connor and Jimmy Carr as well as prestigious ensembles including the RTÉ National Symphony and Concert Orchestras, Princeton and Brown University Orchestras from the US, the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain and the King’s Singers.
University Concert Hall actively engages with Limerick’s wider community organisations and artists including the Voices of Limerick, Limerick Musical Society, Limerick Choral Union and many local Primary and Secondary schools to promote and showcase their artistic endeavours while providing a professional platform for these amateur organisations.
In 2014 UCH was proud to make a significant contribution to the inaugural City of Culture, beginning with its assistance in bringing Riverdance to Limerick for the first time, attracting 17,000 people across 7 shows in 4 days. In June UCH hosted the RTÉ lyric FM Bill Whelan Gala featuring Sir James Galway and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, and in September the legendary Van Morrison who opened the Limerick Jazz Festival.

Directions From Limerick City
University Concert Hall is located 4km from Limerick City on the University of Limerick Campus, just off the main Dublin road (N7). Conveniently we provide accommodation on and off campus also. Take the Dublin Road out of the city and travel approximately three kilometres to the Parkway roundabout. Go straight through at this roundabout, taking the second exit. At the next roundabout, take the first exit and follow the signs for the University. The main entrance is marked by two large flag poles on the left hand side.
Once on campus, at the first roundabout take the first exit and continue straight then take the first right hand turn headed towards the Foundation Building. The University Concert Hall will be located on your right hand side.
