Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A must do if you are in Limerick in my opinion. It's not that there is much to see, it's more the significance of it. It is a mounted block of limestone by the Shannon, it was the stone upon which the Treaty was reigned in 1609 to end the Siege of Limerick. It is located in a very picturesque place right by the Thomond Bridge over the Shannon facing King John's Castle. If you go to the castle you will learn a lot about the stone and the history of the city anyway and I think it would be a real pity for any visitor to miss this singular piece of history.

    No trip to Limerick is complete without a visit to see the statue of O’Connell after which the street is named. Good reference point.

    It's a pity that one of the most famous leaders of the jacobite defence of Limerick during the siege of 1690 is hidden away in this location. Its lost here and really should be moved to a more central location. Its a pity but still worth a visit

    You can’t help but stop and take notice of the life-size statue of Michael Hogan near the entrance of King John’s Castle in Limerick. Hogan was a 19th century poet, known as the Bard of Thomond. The fine statue depicts Hogan, a native of County Limerick, reading from a book as if regaling an audience with a recitation of his poetry. Worth a brief photo stop on one’s way into or out from the castle.

    This serves as both a sad and happy place. Sad as it commemorates those brave souls who lost their lives and happy in that it celebrates the beginnings of a new and free country. Great views from here.

    Spent 30 minutes looking for the statue, up and down the street, inside and outside of the Saint Michael's Church... Only to realise... He was on top of the church the entire time. 5/5 stars! Highly recommend ✨👌🏻
