“I'd driven past by bus--now I see it in person. ”

There's nothing like visiting a landmark up close and personally. It's perhaps not the most exciting landmark, but its historical significance is interesting for history buffs. There are other interesting things to see in the area within a block. It's a massive stone set high in a pedestal from the early 1900s. It's easy to reach by foot by following the Shannon River along a boardwalk. It's across the river from King John's Castle. Be sure to look down on the river there and enjoy the water fowl.

“Historical site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2016

The treat you stone symbolises the history of limerick city and stands alone without ceremony along by the river at the far side of the bridge from St. John's castle. You could easily pass it without taking note of it's a significance!

“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!
