King Johns Castle Limerick

Hi guys seen as Easter school holidays are fast approaching, I thought I would share some kids day out ideas the next few weeks.

We visited King Johns Castle in Limerick a couple of weeks ago the castle itself is a ruin, however we had lots of fun with the interactive displays on exhibition.

Our favourite part of the day was filling out the activity map that we were given on entry to the castle. Following the clues and filling in the answers makes the most of the exhibitions.

The exhibitions encourage children to get involved opposed to just listening to a tour guide.

Outside in the courtyard you can climb to several lookout points that have fabulous views of the river Shannon and Limerick city.

Several of the displays have interactive displays as pictured above that tell a particular story.

In general we loved it and enjoyed it much more than expected as we had been planning on visiting elsewhere that happened to be still currently closed.

Love A


Ps: if you do plan on visiting the castle I would advise buying tickets online here as it’s much cheaper a family of four is €23.00 online and it costs €35.00 at the site.
