Wandered past the treaty stone as we were walking along the riverbank and this is a reminder to all of the treaty signed at the end of the Williamite war in 1691

Just enjoying the river walk when we happened upon the Treaty Stone. The Irish are so proud of their heritage and this stone displays that emotion.

There are some interesting plaques around the base of the monument that tell the story surrounding the treaty stone. It is a must see, especially after you have visited the Castle at the other side of the river.

This is just a rock but with some important history. I was interested in seeing it. If you want to get a walk in you can walk there from King John's castle across the bridge.

Treaty Stone”, can be viewed as just a stone, but there is so much history behind it that it's really worth reading and knowing more about it. It's also located close to King John's Castle and the river the river Shannon,flows close by.

Some might say it's just a stone a plinth, but it is the symbol of Limerick - the Treaty City. It's also literally only a stone's hrow from King John's Castle and the oldest pub in Limerick: JJ Bowles

For anyone who is very interested in the history of the city, this is a must visit. The stone symbolises the treaty that ended the Williamite War in Ireland between the Jacobites and the supporters of William of Orange and concluded the Siege of Limerick....More

A definite must see if you are a history buff on a tour of Limerick City. Best time to see this area of Limerick is early in the day....avoid at night time as the area is frequented by undesirable gangs of teenagers
