King John’s Castle
King John’s Castle is a 13th century castle located on King’s Island in
Limerick City, next to the majestic River Shannon. Following a multi
million euro investment there is a brand new, exciting visitor’s centre.
Using innovative techniques it will bring to life over 800 years of siege,
warfare and dramatic local history. In the spacious courtyard you can
explore a blacksmith’s forge and a 17th century siege. Relax afterwards
in the busy, bright café.
In recent years, Limerick city centre has received a welcome facelift. You
will find all the top, high street shops side by side with smaller family
retailers and a profusion of excellent cafés within walking distance of
each other. The pedestrian streets will make the experience even more
pleasant. You can wile away an hour or two in the popular Hunt Museum
or sample a wide variety of locally produced foodstuffs at the Milk Market
We return to the Gandon Inn for our evening meal. The Inn is a well
known stop on journeys. After the meal we will bring you back to the
agreed drop off point.
