Treat stone near King johns castle is a must visit for tourists interested in Irish history. The stone allegedly used to sign the treaty is preserved their to see. Excellent articles of information on display to pass clear information on the happenings of around the 1690's

This Treaty Stone represents a very strong period of Irish History and in particular Local History. The British who were fighting the Irish in the 1690's finally decided to sign a Treaty. The French came to Ireland to support the Irish but no sooner had the French left Ireland once the Treaty was signed when the British broke the Treaty.... More

This was located along the river, which was a great walk! The boardwalk was clean and we observed three swans and loads of ducks.

Unless you are a big history buff there's nothing to see. It's a monument. Best thing about it is the view of King Johns castle across the river and nice places to eat around it.

We are both historians so we were interested in seeing the Treaty Stone. We were surprised to find it on a pedestal beside the River Shannon, on the street near our restaurant, The Curragower Bar, and across from King John's Castle. Take the time to read the timeline and you'll be surprised how much information this very modest monument can... More

The significance is greater than the landmark, to be sure. It's a fairly small rock that sits at the end of the boardwalk by the bridge, and we took a couple pics in passing, then read more about it online.

Okay if you re in Limerick you have to visit this totally under whelming treaty stone. However, it is located in a perfect place - great view of the castle and while you are there pop into Jack Monday's for a coffee or the Curragower for a pint or lunch!

I found this prominently-situated monument interesting in the historical sense, but not handsome in any sense of the word. It looks darkened and dirty, leaving the impression that it's way overdue for a thorough cleaning. The flowers display dresses up the site and helps to make it a selfies-worthy photo op. The site is a good vantage point for photos... More
