Junior Open House

River Shannon Treasure Trail


Calling all young explorers! Why not explore Limerick City with our riverside treasure trail.


Starting Point: King John’s Castle, King’s Island, Limerick


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, take care while crossing any roads, and be mindful of social distancing.

Print out the appropriate activity sheet below (double sided A4) and remember to bring some pencils with you. If you can, bring a clipboard, or something rigid to lean on while filling out the answers. If you don't have access to a printer, you can view the sheets on a mobile device and fill the answers into a notebook.
