Annual Alumni Week Special Activities

Your Annual Alumni Week planning team has created several fun, optional add-on activities, which we hope will enhance your visit to Ireland!

You Asked & We Listened!

More time with my people!—was one of the big requests from you—so we have worked with the various restaurants and cafes on campus at the university to offer you several options for “dining around campus” with just your group!

You can book lunch or dinner at very special rates offered just for your group (or combine with others to meet the minimum if you are a small group). Booking works just like apartment booking—the group leader books and pays—please click through the link to see all the options and do book soon to avoid disappointment.

Important Note: All of these special activities are reserved for alumni who have registered to attend the 2024 Annual Alumni Week.

On-Campus “Dine Around” Meals

Would your cast/crew, or a portion of your cast/crew, like to reserve space for a group meal together?

The University of Limerick has created a “Dine Around” Dining Reservation system just for us!

There are three restaurants from which to choose. 

Rates per person vary from €18.50 to €37.00; taxes are included, drinks are not.

Dine Around Details:

If you reserved an on-campus apartment, then you will log in with those same credentials. If you did not, then you will create an account. All of the dining options are listed once you log in. 

This is available all week.

Payment is taken when you make the reservation.

Use this reservation system for groups of up to 15 people. However, if you require a booking for more than 15 people, please contact them directly at

Reservations deadline: July 15th
Cancellations accepted until July 21st
