This gorgeous church just happened to be close by when we needed to get to church. The architecture was impressive. The priest was very welcoming.

No matter what your beliefs, this church is worth a visit. Huge tall grey spires and somewhat of a gothic look. This is probably one of the city's most famous landmarks. I was happy to be able to see it and it was a welcome a peaceful place to visit after a long day of touring. Nice stained glass windows... More

We visited this relatively modern Cathedral on a recent visit to Killarney. The stained glass windows are both fairly tradtional and some modern and it is a wonderful mix, and something different. We were fortunate that we had a sunny day for our visit which showed the stained glass off to its best.Well worth a visit.

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.
