A little history
The Bedford is named after Bedford House, which was built c.1830. As with most buildings of this time, Bedford House was originally two Georgian townhouses, and was once home to Peter Tait, former Limerick Mayor and founder of the Limerick Clothing Factory, which started operations right here in the mid nineteenth century.
This rich history and industrial connection to the building has been reignited in the creation of the Bedford Townhouse and Caf�� (you may have noticed that our logo is based on a needle and thread, inspired by the heritage of Bedford House). You will see many references to this history throughout the property in our mix of classic and contemporary d��cor and artwork. With this combination of old and new, we hope to give you a warm and stylish home while you explore our wonderful city. The Bedford is owned and operated by The Brazil Family.
