You view the museum then the castle and you can climb all the way to the top. It is a spectacular view of Limerick. The archeology is awesome. The size of rooms and furniture is very enlightening. You just gotta love history. It's where we come from.

As a lover of history, a visit here was a must. Very reasonable entry free, excellent exhibits in the visitor centre including remakes and actual items found in the castle, with good information about their role in the forming of Limerick. Majority of the castle is accessable, some parts not so much for those with limited mobility but this is just due to the nature of the castle. Fantastic views from the towers.

Entrance fees to get into King John's Castle were a little steep, but the exhibits are well done. As good as they were though, my favorite part was the view from the top of the castle.

I spent a half day visiting and photographing King John's Castle. It is rich in history and beautiful surroundings. Highly recommend a visit.

This amazing castle is breathtaking. Built over 800 years ago, I can only imagine the history these walls have seen. Admission for an adult is €13 and €9.50 for children and seniors.
Well worth it, absolutely stunning!
