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.

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...More

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...More

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