King Johns is an amazing place, full of history and artifacts and interactive history. The most impressive views of the river Shannon and the city from the top of the castle. Finish off your day with a visit to the coffee shop! A great day!

By far the most informative castle ruin we saw in either England or Ireland. Easily the best attraction in Limerick.

Visited king Johns castle and it is certainly fantastic project. Plenty of historical facts coupled with fantastic sunshine and great atmosphere make this a MUST SEE. Word of caution - not suitable for older less able to climb viewers. But what a brilliant view of our treaty city. Well done to pleasant young lady in coffee shop who brought tea/coffee to our table. Unfortunately I don't have a name.

We really enjoyed the castle. It was recently renovated and had great historical information. They also had good activities for kids to be able to participate.

Great day out in Limerick, Really engaging for children - could have spent more time there really, best activity sheets I've seen - the "rubbings" really got them interested to find them! Highly recommend it for family, great value for money
