Just has a short time in Ireland, so I decided to do Limerick for just a day. The Castle was awesome. It is interactive at parts and very informative on the history of the country. I am so happy that I did this. You can also get some great pictures of the city from the towers of the castle.

Good castle museum with easy flowing exhibitions. Some re-enactments - could be more.
No dislikes.
Worth visiting.

Recently renovated and opened to the public, this will be an attraction that will not only be a reason to visit Limerick, but I would say a reason to visit Ireland. I can not express how well run, informative, interactive and superb value for money. From beginning to end we enjoyed every aspect of the tour. The best €9.00 spent in a long time. You get to feel you were apart of history and were even allowed to dress up in period costumes at several different stops, sized for both children and adults! Best castle visit ever!!

I just visited the castle last week with my 4 and 7 girls. They had a great time and at the end of the visit I asked the important question, would you come again. It was a big yes.
The blacksmith, maids and solider actors were brilliant with the kids and made them fell so special. The exhibits and interactive displays were of entertaining. The price to enter was reasonable and was worth it. I recommend this a visit, well done to all on the castle improvements.

The museum, which is integrated with King John's castle is fantastic. History, plus a lot of interactive digital presentations, and period clothes to dress in. The Castle is very nice, not big, but historically important. A must see in Limerick.
