Video of Patrickswell, County Limerick, Republic of Ireland

Patrickswell, historically known as Toberpatrick (Irish: Tobar Phádraig), is a small town in County Limerick, Ireland. The name refers to St. Patrick and there is a small hand pump/well in the main street; Microsoft mappoint and some other programs call the village St. Patrick's Well or St. Patrickswell.

Patrickswell has a main street, with shops, garages, ATMs and a post office. The town is located only 10 km from Limerick city, and as a result relies on the city and its suburbs for secondary schools, shops, banks and other facilities.

There are several housing estates (Marian Park, Lisheen Park,Belgard Grove Sycamore Heights and Laurel Park) off the main street and road to Clarina. The latter road has strip development north from Patrickswell all the way to Clarina and the N69 road. As a dormitory town with only one major street, Patrickswell retains the appearance of a village, despite its population of over 3000.

The town played a role in the Battle of Killmallock.

According to Mainchín Seoighe, the present day parish of Patrickswell-Ballybrown is made up parts of the pre-Reformation parishes of Kilkeedy, Killonahan, Mungret, Croom, and Adare. Until the middle of the 18th century, the parishes of Kilkeedy and Clounanna were joined with Adare. When the parish of Patrickswell was formed Kilkeedy and Clounanna became part of the new parish. The first parish priest of the new parish was Fr Nicholas Molony. The present population of the parish is roughly 3,400 people.

Despite the size, Patrickswell exchange is not DSL-enabled. Some parts can get Digiweb Metro Broadband on 10.5 GHz wireless.

The town is located near to the N20/N21 road, which until Patrickswell was bypassed in 2001, ran through the town centre. This road is now the R526 from west of the town to Limerick city. The town can be accessed at either end from the N20 junction for Limerick Racecourse, or the N20/N21 junction further west (where the R526 commences).

Patrickswell Railway station is now in private ownership, it is home to Hutch Hollywood Engineers.A contemporary extension to the original railway station building was designed by O'Connor + Shanahan architects and won OPUS Building of the year award in 2004.
