King John’s Castle

With King John’s Castle situated so close to the Treaty Stone, it makes sense to combine the two attractions in one outing. Standing proud above the shore of the River Shannon, the Norman King John’s Castle may be 800 years old, but the exhibitions inside it are thoroughly modern. Displays featuring multimedia technology, such as projections, touch screens, and animations, showcase the history of Limerick and the castle in a compelling manner.
