"A Medieval fortress with gorgeous views"

A photogenic castle with views of the river. We enjoyed a self-guided tour out an about the castle which has some interesting exhibits and interactive displays. A visit to the castle educates you on the history of Ireland and Limerick. Commendable views and lots to explore made it one of our favourite spots in Ireland.

King John's Castle (Limerick)

King John's Castle is a 13th-century castle located on King's Island in Limerick, Ireland, next to the River Shannon. Although the site dates back to 922 when the Vikings lived on the Island, the castle itself was built on the orders of King John in 1200. One of the best preserved Norman castles in Europe, the walls, towers and fortifications remain today and are visitor attractions. The remains of a Viking settlement were uncovered during archaeological excavations at the site in 1900.
