We saw this as part of our Limerick Carriage Tour. It's interesting and has some history if you like the history of the area. Not much to see around it.

Once you visit the castle, you should visit the Treaty Stone, as well. The information board is pretty informative about the history of the stone. Good view of King John's castle from here.

The treaty stone is very easy to miss is you are just walking around. We almost did. We walked on this side of the Shannon to get to King John's Castle, and then on a walking tour, our guide brought us back over the bridge...More
