The Michelin Guide's review
The imposing Norman fortress was begun in 1200 and it proves to be a fascinating place to visit. You can approach the underground excavations and see houses from the 12C. Reproductions of weapons and tools give an idea of living conditions in the Middle Ages, while wooden and wicker scaffolding demonstrate medieval building methods. A film captures the often violent and uncertain atmosphere that reigned in Limerick across the centuries.
