When a lot of people in Ireland think “Limousin“, they they think of the famous breed of cattle that were first brought to Ireland over 40 years ago.
This south-central department is indeed the home of the famous bovines but it’s also a relatively undiscovered and truly beautiful corner of France. Its capital Limoges is famous for its enamelling business and counts a huge number of markets within its walls, with two covered markets and various open ones.
