While it may not be a destination in itself, it is a great stop either before or after King John's Castle. There is a wonderful ground plaque that explains the history, and its placement across the river from the castle give it a fantastic view!

Located along the Limerick boardwalk is dedicated to the treaty saving this city.When we visited the surrounding boardwalk riverfront had a lot of trash the needed upkeep and the stone itself needs some refurbishing.Easier said then done,it all cost money!

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

Wandered past the treaty stone as we were walking along the riverbank and this is a reminder to all of the treaty signed at the end of the Williamite war in 1691

Just enjoying the river walk when we happened upon the Treaty Stone. The Irish are so proud of their heritage and this stone displays that emotion.

There are some interesting plaques around the base of the monument that tell the story surrounding the treaty stone. It is a must see, especially after you have visited the Castle at the other side of the river.

This is just a rock but with some important history. I was interested in seeing it. If you want to get a walk in you can walk there from King John's castle across the bridge.

Treaty Stone”, can be viewed as just a stone, but there is so much history behind it that it's really worth reading and knowing more about it. It's also located close to King John's Castle and the river the river Shannon,flows close by.

Some might say it's just a stone a plinth, but it is the symbol of Limerick - the Treaty City. It's also literally only a stone's hrow from King John's Castle and the oldest pub in Limerick: JJ Bowles
