“Nice piece of history in Limerick”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

For anyone who is very interested in the history of the city, this is a must visit. The stone symbolises the treaty that ended the Williamite War in Ireland between the Jacobites and the supporters of William of Orange and concluded the Siege of Limerick. The treaty really consisted of two treaties, both of which were signed on 3 October 1691.

“Historic with wonderful views of The River Shannon flowing through Limerick City”

A definite must see if you are a history buff on a tour of Limerick City. Best time to see this area of Limerick is early in the day....avoid at night time as the area is frequented by undesirable gangs of teenagers

“I'd driven past by bus--now I see it in person. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2016 via mobile

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!
