Castle of king john
Ireland, Limerick (city)

King John's Castle is one of the best-preserved Norman castles in Europe. It is located on the banks of the Shannon River on the Royal Island. The castle was built by order of King John in 1200. In 1642, during the capture of Ireland by Cromwell, the castle and the whole city of Limerick were ravaged. However, the walls, towers and fortifications were not badly damaged.
In the period 2011-2013, the castle underwent a global reconstruction, which spent about 6 million euros. According to its results, King John’s castle has acquired a new center for tourists, interactive exhibitions and a magnificent cafe overlooking the courtyard and the river.
