The Bedford Townhouse & Café - Your Townhouse in the heart of Limerick City.

The Bedford Townhouse & Café is a boutique 12-bedroom townhouse located in the heart of Limerick City. Lovingly restored with original architectural features and stylish modern touches, this heritage townhouse provides the perfect setting to stay for your Limerick wedding. 

Bedford House has a rich industrial heritage and the origins of the Limerick Clothing Factory began within its walls nearly 200 years ago. These stories and the history of Bedford Row have been weaved throughout the townhouse making it a unique place for your wedding party to stay while still being centrally located in the city centre of Limerick. Bringing this old and new world together has enabled the restoration of the residence feel of the townhouse, with 12 beautifully appointed bedrooms, while also providing all the luxury of a five-star hotel experience.

As a boutique townhouse, the intimacy of The Bedford is its hidden gem. When the Townhouse is booked exclusively for a wedding party; guests can make The Townhouse their own in every sense. In addition to the Chic, Elegant and Suite bedrooms guests can also gather and mingle in the Parlour Room lounge area. This is a beautifully versatile space which can be used for an evening drinks reception the evening before a wedding and can then be transformed to a space that the bridal party can use for hair and makeup on the morning of a wedding and prepare for the excitement of the day ahead. Likewise the roof garden is a lovely outdoor space to get a breath of air and relax (and even get in some last minute practice for speeches!). The beautiful décor throughout the Townhouse which was designed by renowned local interior designer, Tullio Orlandi, also provides the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs.  The focus on the “little touches” is seen throughout the Townhouse with calming colour palettes, natural fabrics, robes and slippers in all guest rooms, and The Bedford Row heritage trail on display in The Parlour Room. Limerick is also very much at the heart of the guest experience at The Bedford and all 12 bedrooms are named after Limerick landmarks or traditions which evoke a lovely curiosity about this great city.

After a restful night’s sleep, guests can wake to a delicious breakfast/brunch in The Bedford Café where you can enjoy a locally sourced menu with some healthier twists on traditional dishes – the perfect way to start your special day with your loved ones.
