First I must say the photos shown for this attraction are not St John's Square. The building shown is located in Cathedral Place a plaza/ wide street adjacent to St John's Square.
The Square on three sides consists of Georgian townhouses built for the gentry circa 1750 and are located within what was then the walls of medieval Limerick. The major Georgian district in Limerick (built later) is located in a newtown outside the long gone medieval wall, . These houses are faced with local grey limestone unlike most of Georgian Limerick which has red brick buildings. The fourth side of the square has a small church yard and a church built c 1850. This church is a direct replacement for the medieval church of St John which gives the area its name. The square has been revamped lately with paving and information boards etc but there are some old circular information placques on some of the buildings. The general area is a slight bit down at heel and could do with some TLC also two of the houses in the square look unoccupied, which takes from the square. None of the buildings are open to the public but you are quite close to St John's Cathedral which may be open for visiting.
St John's Square is about 10 minutes walk from the main Tourist Office and 5 minutes from the Milk Market.
