Great views from this part of Limerick as you have King Johns castle right beside this stone, Curraghgower Bar just a few feet from this stone and The Hunt Museum across the river! Definitely a must see part of Limerick City for tourists! Locals will be used to walking past this stone every day but for tourists it really is a piece of Limericks history!

I visited the treaty stone at night, it is well preserved. It's right across the river from King John's Castle. I sat on bench and enjoyed great views of the River Shannon.
Even not the most spectacular attraction in Limerick but the significance is extraordinary, representation of a very important event in history.

There was mild hype about this thing. We happened upon it when out for a walk from our hotel. Its just a stone monument on the side of the road. The history behind it is interesting but it was underwhelming.

This Treaty Stone represents a very strong period of Irish History and in particular Local History. The British who were fighting the Irish in the 1690's finally decided to sign a Treaty. The French came to Ireland to support the Irish but no sooner had the French left Ireland once the Treaty was signed when the British broke the Treaty. This happened within days of the Treaty being signed by both sides. So Limerick is often referred to as the City with the broken Treaty. It was a very interesting time for anyone interested in Irish History and in particular history of Limerick. This historical area is of interest to all age groups. Many children in Ireland get projects at school and go to the library to research the Treaty Stone.
