I am not aware of any technique to limit the login attempts, and believe that it might also hinder and come in your way to access your joomla administration...
however for securing your admin directory you can refer to this thread
viewtopic.php?f=470&t=681814

if you have a static IP, then you can use a .htaccess file to allow access to your admin directory only by your specific IP (you might google this)

install admin tools by akeeba and use it - https://www.akeebabackup.com/software/admin-tools.html

helps a lot with other very useful features for admin

-or-
use those htpassword and htaccess files for your admin folder
