King John's Castle in Limerick
King John's Castle is located on King's Island in Limerick, Ireland, next to the River Shannon.

This castle, built on the orders of King John and bearing his name, was completed around 1200.

The walls, towers and fortifications remain today, and are a visitor attraction. The remains of a Viking settlement (see the photo) were uncovered during the construction of a visitor centre at the site.
