Story / Mission
Limerick locals John Harrison and David Hackett saw the Irish climbing community bursting at the seams, yet no representation in the midwest, that of Limerick & Co Clare, and decided to do something about it. After several conversations, John and David dreamed up the perfect facility to cater to the needs of local climbers. A major component of rock climbing is community, so they knew that whatever they made would have to combine impressive rock walls, dynamic bouldering areas, with a comfortable place for members to gather and collaborate.
The goal: To build a premier hub where Limerick / Clare climbers could not only perfect their craft, but to create a space where they could gather as a community, learning from and teaching one another.
The ongoing mission of Suas is to offer everything that a traditional climbing gym does… Only better. John and David took standard climbing and bouldering gym concepts and improved on them, adding dedicated indoor and outdoor commune area’s.
One of the best things about having local owners is accessibility. Suas isn’t a big-box gym, so the staff actually hears what you have to say. Feedback is always welcome and is taken seriously, and you’re encouraged to let us know what you think about your new climbing home.
