As an international exchange student from
I went to King John's Castle with my two friends on weekend.The ticket cost was €6.45 for a student visit.There were some student tourists and many kids with their parents,which made the castle a little noisy but alive.We were firstly welcomed by the staff.Then we got to know the brief history of the castle from a guide.There was a small film theater in the second floor playing videos about the history of Limerick city.
There was a coin making machine on show.You could insert a coin and make a commemorative coin by yourself.But unfortunately it doesn't work that day.We went to the top of the castle and enjoyed the sight of beautiful Shannon river and quiet Limerick street.We took some photos there and lost ourselves in the historic and comfortable atmosphere.
I have to say King John's Castle may be a little small compared to some historical sites in China.But small is beautiful.Its classic and elaborate style impressed me.I view it a great experience to visit King John's Castle.
Here is a funny video about King John's Castle on Youtube : )
