It's not too much to see, but this symbol of how the royal people were dealing in this time. The view is fantastic and the history involved is very interesting.

Just over the road from the castle, you understand its importance once you tour the castle. Worth a look while your there

The stone is an important part of Limerick's history but it is quite underwhelming: for a casual observer it's just a big rock placed on a pedestal and surrounded by metal plates detailing history.

Walked past this monument in the evening and and thought 'lovely stone' but after visiting the castle in the day and the history is revealed, the monument became 'Wow'!!

Not the most spectacular attraction in the city but definitely an important one to see. It's right across the river from King John's Castle so would be worth combining them when visiting the area. The walk along that side of the Shannon is also very pleasant on a sunny day.

If you did not know where this stone was situated you would miss it, in our opinion it is not highlighted enough for the visitor. Once located the information surrounding the stone was interesting, however I don think more could be said to highlight the importance of this special stone.

The stone carries a little be more meaning after spending some time at King John's Castle and hearing the history behind it.

Across the river from King John's Castle and just along from the excellent Curragower pub. Well worth a look if you're interested in Irish history. Very understated...

Walked past while crossing to King John's castle from a delicious lunch at the pub across the small street from this stone. Honestly - as monuments go - entirely unremarkable. Worth a read of the plaques along the base but frankly rather underwhelming.

If you're passing through Limerick and you don't have much time, stop by the Treaty Stone. Not only can you read a bit about the history of the area, but it also offers great views of the River Shannon, King John's Castle, and St. Mary's Cathedral. A great place to stretch your legs and walk a bit along the riverside,... More
