“Treaty Stone”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2016

My fiance and I were killing time before heading to Shannon airport by wandering around Limerick. We stumbled across the stone after crossing the river near St John's Castle. There is a small notice board nearby which gives you a brief history of the stone - it's worth reading this to appreciate it and the significance of it.

“Limerick Culture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2016

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!

“Yes it's a stone”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2016

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.

“Its a stone”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2016

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.
