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... More

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!

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.

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... More

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.

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.

This Treaty Stone represents a very strong period of Irish History and in particular Local History. The British who were fighting the Irish in the 1690's finally decided to sign a Treaty. The French came to Ireland to support the Irish but no sooner had the French left Ireland once the Treaty was signed when the British broke the Treaty.... More
