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.

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.

Great Limerick Landmark, we stumbled across it unplanned on a walk along with river. Great to see in person, as I had read about it before our trip. Nice location.

This stone is representation of a very important event in history. Not much to look at, but if you are passing the way, don't miss it.
