Hello, Can anyone help us about finding groceries (yogurts, bread, cheese, fruit, crackers) in Limerick and generally (Ennis, smaller towns) -- are there "chains" of stores? What are they typically called? thanks!
Both Limerick and Ennis are well served by supermarket chains. Tesco is the largest chain, originating in the UK but now international. You'll find them in most Irish towns including Limerick and Ennis. Dunnes Stores and Super Valu are Irish and again you will find both in Limerick and Ennis. European chains such as Lidl and Aldi are 'discount' supermarkets, again widespread in Ireland, but mainly selling their own brands, so good prices but limited ranges. Superquinn are another Irish chain but I think you'll find them in Limerick but not Ennis. Spar and Centra are chains which offer smaller shops with often slightly higher prices but well stocked with all your basic needs and open longer hours. Google any of the above names for more details of locations, opening hours etc. AM
