Discover Irish history at its best with a visit to the innovative King John’s Castle in Limerick City. Explore 800 years of history brilliantly and authentically brought to life in the imaginative historical exhibition, excavated pre-Norman houses, fortifications, siege mines, and the battlement walks.

King John, as “Lord of Ireland” minted his own coins and the Royal moneyer would have struck the coins in the Castle mint. The sights, scenes and sounds of the Castle and its environs all combine to recreate the atmosphere of the era.

The Castle has undergone a €6 million redevelopment bringing the 13th century castle to the 21st century through the use of touch screen technology and interpretive activities. The Castle now has a lovely tea-room with gorgeous views over the River Shannon.

An exciting and educational visit, this is surely one of the best castles in Ireland!
