Hospitality Centre

Bedford Row began at the gates of Limerick Prison with a kettle! The Sisters of Mercy and Franciscan order joined forces to support families affected by imprisonment in Limerick City. Visiting a loved one can be a stressful anxious time for families. Our aim to to ease this distress by offering a cup of tea and a friendly face. Our work grew into the prison and the community as the years went by, but the visiting centre remains as our favourite place to meet families
