Limerick is the worst of the four IMO but I don't think it's an absolute dump overall. Out by UL is well swish...

A lot of people voting Limerick have probably never even been there

Too busy reading scare stories from Paul Williams

Limerick will win that poll a 100 times out of 100, we can thank the media for that.

I was thinking more in terms of the architecture, the businesses there, the things to do, the atmosphere and so forth. I wouldn't have a breeze what anyone was saying to me in Stockholm, but I'd still say the city itself was nice.

Well, that and the fact that it is indeed a total dump. I speak as a man who has visited several cities - perhaps almost half a dozen.

Limerick can be alright for a night out but I could never see myself living there.

Apart from the scrapping for lower places, wasn't this an obvious one?

Dump-wise, I'd go:
1.Limerick
2.Dublin
3.Cork
4.Galway

Dublin's got a lot of attractions that'd almost make me put up with the skangers and junkies, Galway's got too many culchies to appreciate the cultural side unhindered, Corks actually got more skangers than Limerick, but they're WAY less prone to violence and intimidation (maybe because the students in Cork aren't in a student ghetto?), and Limerick... has nothing, really.
A nice country-side to escape to?
