We got married in this Cathedral.....absolutely beautiful. The stonework is amazing and with it being right next to the National Park it is in a beautiful location. Stunning photos. Fr Kevin who officiated over our wedding was really great and made our wedding very memorable for all the right reasons.

We gathered to celebrate our first day in Ireland as a family! Very beautiful limestone church with green lighting and stained glass. Wonderful experience to celebrate with the local parishioners!

St. Mary's Cathedral is a must see. I was totally blown away with the architecture of the building. It would be the most magnificent place for a wedding. I'll admit that I am not a regular church attendant, but this place would make you feel like coming back more and more.

We were very fortunate to attend the Easter Vigil Mass at St. Mary's Cathedral in Killarney in April 2014. A beautiful church with a welcoming congregation!

What a BEAUTIFUL place to stop in for a visit. My husband and I weren't sure you could go in, so we watched to see if another couple was put on the run!!

Went to mass at St. Mary's before we left Killarney. A beautiful cathedral in the classic style. Even if you are not Catholic it is worth seeing for the architecture and the stain glass windows.

Loved this church. The inside was absolutely beautiful, and the outside architecture is incredible. Please stop and take a look! It was so pleasant to just stop in the middle of our whirlwind vacation to enjoy some quiet time.

This is one of the most incredible churches I have seen. We went to Sunday morning mass and the service was great. It eas great not only because of the priest and mass but because of the surroundings within the church. Very high ceilings, beautiful architecture, unbelievable side chapels all added to feeling of being in a special place. The... More
