Historically, the district was entirely separate to Limerick, and consisted of little development aside from the villages of Annacotty and Monaleen. With the creation of the University of Limerick, as well as the growth of Limerick itself, this began to change. Castletroy is one of the fastest-growing residential areas in Ireland and has now engulfed the old villages of Annacotty and Monaleen . Monaleen parish has one of the most beautiful buildings as its main landmark: Monaleen Church.
Castletroy includes three primary schools Milford NS, Monaleen NS and a Gaelscoil , the secondary school, Castletroy College, and a number of hotels including the Kilmurry Lodge Hotel and Castletroy Park Hotel. It is also host to both Milford and Monaleen Gaelic Athletic Association Clubs.
The population in of Castletroy is now approximately 32,506 people, of which 16,573 are students. Castletroy Golf Course is well known and divides Monaleen and Castletroy itself. Kilbane, Castletroy Heights, Monaleen Heights and Monaleen Park were the original housing developments and were once surrounded by farmland. These houses are the oldest.
Recent developments include numerous sprawling housing estates. Newtown local shopping centre, the main Castletroy shopping centre, extends to some 90,000 square feet is located off Dublin road at Kilmurray roundabout and includes Superquinn supermarket and 24 mall shops, McDonald's restaurant and an eight-screen cinema, "Storm", which opened its first screen on 19 May 2005. Lidl have recently opened a branch in Castletroy. A local park has also been built including a children's playground and skatepark.
Several attempts have been made by Limerick City Council to expand its area of control to include Castletroy, which currently remains officially and legally in Limerick County Council even though the area is a natural extension of the city due to the growth of the city and from urban sprawl. The amalgamation of the 2 local authorities in Limerick from 2014 will see all areas of Limerick under one united and single authority for the first time. It is expected from then that Castletroy will be officially seen as part of the overall urban fabric of Limerick City. The National Technology Park is home to some major business in Castletroy such as 'Vistakon', a contact lens division of Johnson & Johnson and O2, a major mobile phone operator.
Also in Castletroy is a small and little-known Jewish graveyard. It dates from the late 19th century when Limerick had a sizable Jewish community. However, the Jews were mostly driven from the city in what was called the Limerick Pogrom . In 1990 the site was renovated and reopened by Chief Rabbi Mervis.
