Shannon River Treasure Trail

Calling all young explorers! Why not explore Limerick City with the OpenHouse Limerick’s riverside Treasure Trail.

This trail starts at King John's Castle and follows the flow of the River Shannon through the city to Howley's Quay, with a variety of fun questions and activities to complete along the way.

There are two different sets of questions following the same route. The Junior Trail is aimed at 4-8 year olds and the Senior Trail at 8-12 year olds, with some help from a parent or guardian likely to be required along the way.

Be sure to read all of the directions and questions carefully and take care while crossing any roads.
