Location and Transport


The lands at Askeaton occupy a pivotal location along the N69 road corridor in close proximity to LimerickCity and Foynes Port, enabling swift movement and heightened efficiency.

The development landbank is located 10km from Foynes Port, 46km from Shannon Airport and 28km from Limerick City – important logistical considerations for supply chain management.

The road infrastructure is due for a significant upgrade with the new Limerick-Foynes road project, which will enhance connectivity.

The Shannon Estuary is one of the most valuable natural resources in Ireland and the Mid-West Region in particular. 

The fringe lands and the marine asset offer both space and location for development, activities and opportunities to progress economic, social and environmental growth within the region.

Annual shipping trade on the Shannon Estuary (mainly consisting of coal, oil, bauxite, chemicals, alumina, fertiliser, timber etc.) is in excess of 10 million tonnes per annum and vessels of up to 200,000 DWT are regularly handled.

The following marine based heavy industry infrastructure projects are already located on the Shannon Estuary:

Moneypoint Power Station
Tarbert Power Station
Aughinish Alumina
