King John's Castle

Recommended
Construction of King John's Castle, a notable example of fortified Norman architecture, began in 1200. Visitors can explore the underground excavations of this fascinating castle and see remains of houses from the 12C. Reproductions of weapons and tools give an idea of life in the Middle Ages, while wooden and willow scaffolding demonstrate medieval building methods. A film provides information on the often violent and uncertain atmosphere which reigned in Limerick across the centuries.
