Filming on the Streets:
While you do not necessarily need a permit to film on the streets of Limerick, it is in your interest to let us and the relevant local authorities know where and when you are filming, and to show courtesy to members of the public and local businesses. If you are filming on private property you will obviously need the owner’s permission. In the event of street closures, traffic control etc. you will need to apply for the appropriate permit or license.
Film in Limerick do not issue permits and licenses for filming, but we can put you in contact with the right department in Limerick City & County Council to do so.
