The University of Limerick offers a wide range of courses with special strengths in the natural sciences, social sciences, technology, and Irish studies, including a new program in Irish traditional dance. The unique equine studies program is of special interest to equestrians and students interested in veterinary science.

Hollins students in Limerick live in apartment suites in student villages on campus. Each suite has several single bedrooms and a shared living room and kitchen. Students prepare their own meals or eat in the subsidized restaurants on campus. Hollins provides an allowance to cover the cost of meals.
