THE first phase of a massive multipurpose entertainment venue, which is to include a rugby museum, is to open in Limerick city centre in the coming weeks.
The purpose built 30,000 square foot premises to be know as Parnell Plaza, has been under construction for the past nine months employing over 40 people.
The site is located at 41 – 43 Parnell St. and extending to Dominic Street is opposite Colbert train and bus station.
Mid-July will see the re-location of The Timeout gaming area to its home in Parnell Plaza while August will see the opening of the courtyard area.
“This sunny sheltered area will offer outside dining opportunities when the weather permits,” Paula Casey of Parnell Plaza explained. “We are very excited with the prospect of opening Limerick’s newest and largest entertainment venue and look forward to welcoming our customers both new and old. Parnell Plaza will offer people the opportunity to be entertained in a modern and comfortable environment,” she added.
The venue will open seven days a week and over the coming months will progressively provide different entertainment choices to visitors.
Vero at Parnell Plaza will also open in early August and will be headed up by Chef Declan Hayes.
Declan commented “Vero, the Italian word for real is the inspiration behind our menu. We will provide freshly made food using the finest ingredients, sourced locally at affordable prices. Our casual yet modern setting is located on the ground floor and is ideal for people to come relax and enjoy light meals, sweet treats and refreshments”.
This project will progress further in October with future phases rolling out in December 2013, March 2014 and July 2014.
The company behind this new venture is 100% Limerick owned and has over 35 years’ experience working in the entertainment and gaming Industry.
