Villiers School is an independent coeducational Protestant day and boarding secondary school located on the North Circular Road, Limerick, Ireland.

History[edit]

Founded from the estate of Hannah Villiers in 1821, the school has a Protestant ethos and is managed by the Headmistress on behalf of the board of governors. The school relocated from Henry Street to its current location on the Tivoli campus on the North Circular Road less than one mile from Limerick city centre in 1953.
