Rathkeale is the second largest town in County Limerick. The long main street has some fine examples of Doric and Lonic doorways, some with fanlights. The courthouse is from the early 19th century. It was an important Geraldine town. In 1709, around 200 families, refugees from Germany, were settled in the Rathkeale area. Today, the names of their descendants are still in evidence - such as Teskey, Ruttle, Switzer and Shier. A 13th century Augustinian abbey, now in ruins, can be seen in the town centre.
