Limerick is a quaint New England town located in the foothills of the White Mountains on the southern coast of Maine. As of the 2000 census, the town had a population of 2,240 residents. In 1668 the Indians sold the land that is now Limerick to Francis Small, a trader from Kittery, for two blankets, two gallons of rum, two pounds of powder, four pounds of musket balls and twenty strings of beads. In 1772, a lawyer named James Sullivan named the town after his father's birthplace in Ireland. The town of Limerick is home to Lake Arrowhead, which boasts some of the best fishing in the state of Maine. It's also great for all types of other water sports like fishing, boating, water skiing and sailing. Other activities in the area include hiking, biking, windsurfing, kayaking and canoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. The town of Limerick is a delightful place to visit with lots of quaint stores and antique shops and village restaurants. With its location on the southern coast of Maine, you'll also find many other things to do and places to explore, such as lighthouses, secluded harbors and rocky shorelines, sandy beaches and picturesque harbors, outlet shopping and fine dining on fresh delicious seafood. A visit to Limerick lets you experience all that Maine has to offer for a relaxing and rewarding vacation.
