If you're passing it's interesting to see but nothing mind blowing. A nice little spot to reflect and view the fast flowing Shannon river and the castle.

Right on the River Shannon in Limerick across from King John's Castle is the monument with the treaty stone. We stopped here on a break as we were on our way to the Cliffs of Moher. The stone has it's own space along the sidewalk beside the bridge. Lots of room for people to stand, good light. Very intricate work... More

The Treaty of Limerick was supposedly signed on this Treaty Stone in 1691 following the Siege of Limerick. Our guide told us that it was set up on the pedestal to keep souvenir hunters from chipping away pieces of it. The Stone lies directly across the River Shannon from the impressive King John's Castle, one of the most picturesque in... More

Located just opposite of King John's Castle across the River Shannon, the Treaty Stone is mega-significant history to the Irish culture.

A very historic monument. Situated alongside the river just outside city centre but easy to walk to. Plenty to discover around the stone about its history.

Definitely worth seeing as part of exploring Limerick City, particularly if you have visited St John's Castle and understood the history of the stone. Probably not worth going out of your way for as there is no display near the treaty stone but would recommend as part of walking around Limerick.

The Treaty stone is placed on the sidewalk on it's grand display stone with info on the stand as well as strip of bronze all around the display. There's also an information stand with some historic data about it. I expected it to be in a dedicated place like a square or a small enclave at least! The close by... More

So this is where the Irish basically lost to the British. you will see it on your walk along the Shannon. It's very sad to see.
