About King John's Castle

The Castle was built between 1200 and 1210 and was repaired and extended many time in the following centuries. The visitors centre at the Castle contains an imaginative historical exhibition which tells the story of the Castle. Archaeological excavations have revealed Pre-Norman settlements and evidence from the traumatic siege of 1642. The courtyard and castle display some of the trades and traditions of the 16th century with the aid of costumed characters. The castle offers panoramic views of Limerick city and the surrounding countryside.
