Interesting monument with a good view of the castle

We passed by this monument during our tour in Ireland, the history behind it is quite nice and where it stands it also gives a nice view of King John's Castle

We visited this as part of our walking tour with Declan Hassett - info about his tours can be obtained from King John's Castle. Good tour guide, catering for all interests.

Not much to see but it's the story behind it that matters most. It's in a nice & quite spot just across the river from King John's Castle and worth a stop for a photo opportunity. Some tour buses stop here taking photos before heading over to the Castle and it became a little crowded on one of the days... More

This is just a stone. However, it is a stone with lots of history. There is also a brief history on the ground around the stone and a plaque that says "Treaty of Limerick signed 1691". It is also in a nice area, across from King John's Castle and next to the Shannon River. This is a short stop.

This is one of those attractions which is difficult to rate - after all it is just a stone mounted on a plinth but the location alongside the Shannon has King John's Castle and the city of Limerick in the background giving you some great photo opportunities. There is also a brief history on the ground around the plinth. As... More

It is great to see and visit, but I would advise maybe passing it by briefly on a walk along O Callaghans Strand and Clancys Strand which is very scenic along the river.

This stone is located right along the Shannon River. It is just a monument but it has a lot of history and meaning behind it.

Just across King John's Castle, after crossing the bridge, is the Treaty Stone. Interesting history time-line placed around the stone. Good view of the castle.

Have a look around the base of it and it will tell you the story of some of Limericks significant past.

The treaty stone is riddled with history and has great importance to the city of Limerick. It is in a beautiful location (on the River Shannon and across from King John's Castle). I would recommend a quick stop on the way to many of the interesting attractions in that area.
