The Story, the History is Awesome, Brutal, Unbelievable. Right beside the beautiful River Shannon, and opposite King John's Castle - what more needs to be said...

We did stroll over to this spot once we had seen King John's Castle but it really wasn't very interesting. Since we were already there we had a look. From this location its a great spot to take a great photo of the castle itself.

The information about the monument is very educational, and it's on a path around the river that is very picturesque.

Right on the river walk and a good exhibit that can be read while walking along the river. Everything in Limerick closes up at 5:00 pm and this was an attraction that we could actually access after 5:00!

It is just at the side of the road across the castle! You can enjoy reading the history of it. Can be a part of a lovely walk in the Limerick city

It's just a stone but the history behind it is very interesting and is well-explained by the tourist information provided alongside it.

Great history behind this Treaty Stone, which can be learned from the site. The Jacobite and Williamite wars in the 17th Century

Just over the bridge from the castle this sight is easy to get to. It is an important piece of history for Limerick and it is definitely worth a walk to see it.
