King John's Castle is a magnificent castle located on King's Island in Limerick. Built in 1210, this is a perfect example of fortified Norman architecture in Ireland. Visitors can explore the gatehouse, the corner towers and the battlements. The sleeping cannons in the courtyard are also well worth a look. Exhibitions on display around the building illustrate how this castle was the centre of royal authority and defense in Norman times. Today it is where medieval Limerick comes alive. King John's Castle is a spectacular structure located in the heart of the city and today is the focal point of Limerick.
