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!

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.
