Managed to stop and take a look at this very important landmark. So much history to know about in limerick and the stone is a very important part of it.

We saw this as part of our Limerick Carriage Tour. It's interesting and has some history if you like the history of the area. Not much to see around it.

Once you visit the castle, you should visit the Treaty Stone, as well. The information board is pretty informative about the history of the stone. Good view of King John's castle from here.

While it may not be a destination in itself, it is a great stop either before or after King John's Castle. There is a wonderful ground plaque that explains the history, and its placement across the river from the castle give it a fantastic view!
