King John's Castle
I have always had a keen interest in the history of Ireland and have visited many castle's around the country in the last few years but had not yet been to one in County Limerick. When I first heard about King John's Castle on a website my friend found http://www.limericktourist.com/details/king_johns_castle.shtml i was very interested as it was a beautiful 13th century Castle on King’s Island in the heart of medieval Limerick City and was easily accessed from the city centre. I decided during a week in september to stay down one weekend in college with my friend Steph to explore the castle. We set off from the university at 11a.m on the Saturday morning and arrived at King John's Castle at about 11.35a.m. It was a lovely sunny day which made the experience even more enjoyable. Admission to enter the castle was six euro and 65 cent for student's.
