Walking along the Shannon from the Curragower Bar & Restaurant back to the Absolute Hotel we stopped and took notice of the Treaty Stone while taking pictures of King John's Castle across the river.

It was nice and interesting but more interesting is that the original resides in Dublin. The walk along the river was fantastic though and it was worth reading about the history fo the Stone.

We did stroll over to this spot once we had seen King John's Castle but it really wasn't very interesting. Since we were already there we had a look. From this location its a great spot to take a great photo of the castle itself.

The information about the monument is very educational, and it's on a path around the river that is very picturesque.

Right on the river walk and a good exhibit that can be read while walking along the river. Everything in Limerick closes up at 5:00 pm and this was an attraction that we could actually access after 5:00!

It is just at the side of the road across the castle! You can enjoy reading the history of it. Can be a part of a lovely walk in the Limerick city

It is free. It will not take you very long but if you are in the area stop by and see it. Make sure you read everything on the ground around the monument to get the history. It is a good summary and adds to...More
