The boundaries of the city were extended on March 1, 2008, when the " City Boundary Alteration Order 2008" came into effect. This followed demands from city councillors for a redrawing of the boundary, which was deemed antiquated and inaccurate for modern-day . The order added an area of approximately 1,020 hectares from County , increasing the city"s area by almost 50% and increasing the population by an estimated 7,000. The added area comprises the townlands of Clonmacken, Caherdavin, Knock, Shanabooley, Ballygrennan, Clonconane, Clondrinagh, Coonagh East and Coonagh West.

is at the heart of the region dubbed "the Midwest". Also known as the "Shannon Region", this is primarily an economic and social concept. The region encompasses County , County Clare, North County Tipperary and Northwest County Kerry, with its focal point centred on and its environs within an eight-kilometre (five-mile) radius.

The area is possibly the main economic region outside of Dublin and Cork. Its economic success has been driven in part by the University of , Shannon Airport in Co. Clare and Shannon Development (an economic development agency), whose precursor was SFADCO (Shannon Free Airport Development Company), an economic agency that provided tax incentives to companies locating in the area surrounding Shannon Airport. Shannon Development is mostly concerned with disposing of valuable industrial park properties.

Historically was an agricultural commodity-driven economy, due to its position as the first major port along the River Shannon. The city was one of the main meat processing areas in Ireland, and industry included confectionery and flour production. In line with the changing economic landscape in Ireland, many multinational companies are based in . Dell has its main European Manufacturing Facility in Raheen Business Park, and is one of the largest employers in the midwest region. - Irish Independent article, registration required. The facility is the largest Dell manufacturing plant outside the United States and produces 30,000-60,000 units per day for export to the EMEA, contributing 5.8% of Irish GDP (2002). In January 2009 Dell announced that it would close its plant and move the production lines to Poland. Analog Devices has its European manufacturing base in Raheen, 3 km south-west of the city centre. The site employs more than 1,000 people.

It is Vistakon"s only production facility outside the United States and one of the largest contact-lens manufacturing plants in the world.

City is one of the country"s main tourist destinations, only a 15-minute drive from Shannon Airport. Currently tourism is growing at a spectacular rate with over 1,000 new beds being opened in the city in 2006 thanks to the opening of five new hotels. The city is the first to provide visitors with "Street Ambassadors", people designated to help others around and make their stay more enjoyable.

Tourist attractions in the city centre include King John"s Castle (1212), St Mary"s Cathedral (1168), Hunt Museum, several seasonal tours (Angela"s Ashes walking tour of City, historical walking tour and boat tours along the River Shannon), the University of , Georgian house and gardens and the Treaty Stone. Adare village and the Foynes Flying Boat Museum on the outskirts of the city are also popular attractions.

The Jim Kemmy Municipal Museum, also known as Museum, is next to King John"s Castle. It contains displays on "s history and manufactures.


The service industry is an important employer in the city. The city centre is one of the main shopping areas, with the pedestrianised Cruises St being one of the main shopping streets and also the recently pedestrianised Bedford Row. New on the agenda is the proposed predestranisation of O"Connell St up to Roches St near the Oriental Foodstore and a new look for William St, the heart of City. Each side of the city has outlying shopping areas. "Crescent Shopping Centre" is in Dooradoyle, not far from the city centre. It has over 90 shopping outlets along with restaurants and the 12-screen Omniplex Cinema. Regular bus services run from the city centre to the Crescent Shopping Centre. The Jetland Shopping Centre is in Caherdavin. It opened in 2005. Its main anchor is Dunnes Stores, with other shops and services including Golden Discs and Costa Coffee

In late 2007/early 2008, Coonagh Cross Shopping Centre was opened. It will be the biggest shopping centre in the Mid-West region. A city-centre shopping centre of a similar scale (billed in some places as prospectively the biggest in Munster) is also planned. The Opera Centre would be located parallel to Rutland and Patrick Street, from the (Abbey River) quays to Ellen Street. This will be the first major leap of faith by external developers in City Centre as up to now the city has been all but passed over leaving the majority of development to locals. There is also a proposal to redevelop the Arthur"s Quay and Sarsfield Street area, incorporating a new street from O"Connell St to Arthur"s Quay Park. The construction of suburban shopping centres has had an effect on city centre retail by reducing footfall in shopping areas. It is hoped that these new developments will improve retail in the city centre. However, the recent downturn in the economy has seen some high profile closures and the Opera Centre development has stalled.

City has a vibrant nightlife, with numerous nightclubs the best known being Trinity Rooms with Icon, Teds and Peter Clohessy"s Sin Bin being amongst the others. Pubs such as Nancy Blakes, The Wicked Chicken, Mickey Martins and The Old Quarter give a range of drinking experiences from the warm and cosy to cutting edge. Traditional Irish Music is based around Dolans Warehouse which is firmly established on the national Trad circuit and also hosts many local, national and international folk, indie, jazz and rock acts.

The city centre is divided between the traditional areas of "English Town" on the southern end of King"s Island, which includes the castle; "Irish Town", which includes the older streets on the south bank; and the current economic centre, called "Newtown Pery". Newtown Pery was built in the late 18th century before the Act of Union and, unusually for an Irish city and unique in , is laid out on a grid plan. city centre is changing rapidly, with the construction of several modern high-rise buildings in the early 2000s. The suburban regions, where the majority of the population now live, have grown out from the centre along the main roads to Ennis (North Circular and Ennis Road areas/Caherdavin), Dublin (Castletroy and the University) and Cork (Ballinacurra/Dooradoyle/Raheen). Suburban houses are generally two floor semi-detached homes for single families. These were built from the 1960s onwards in large estates by government projects and commercial developments, although there are many examples of Edwardian and older 1930s suburban homes on the main suburban thoroughfares leading towards the city (North & South Circular, Ballinacurra Road, O"Connell Avenue).

Much Georgian architecture was evident in the city from about the 1800s onwards. Although some has been demolished, much of the Newtown Pery area is built in the Georgian fashion. Other architectural buildings of note in the city are King John"s Castle and St Mary"s Cathedral in English Town and St John"s Cathedral, designed by the notable Victorian architect, Philip Charles Hardwick. St Mary"s Cathedral, at over 800 years old, is one of the oldest in Ireland. St John"s Cathedral, whilst more modern, has one of the tallest steeples.

One of Ireland"s most celebrated museums, the Hunt Museum, is based in the historic 18th-century former Custom House. The museum was established to house an internationally important collection of approximately 2000 works of art and antiquities formed by John and Gertrude Hunt during their lifetimes. On display are the 9th century Antrim Cross, a sketch by Picasso and a bronze sculpture of a horse, said to be from a design by Leonardo da Vinci.

Services to and from Nenagh on the Ballybrophy line were expanded to include an extra commuter service each way in 2008. Due to speed restrictions this former direct route from to Dublin takes some 60 minutes longer (with a change at Ballybrophy) than other routes. Passengers for Cork and the South must change at Junction. Changing at Junction also gives extra services to Dublin - in fact services to/from Dublin involving a change are around ten minutes quicker than the direct trains. There are also plans and construction work in progress to reopen the Western Railway Corridor from Ennis to Galway and later to Sligo, the last remaining section having closed in 1976.
