My visit to the church, was to see where my fathers family grew up and it's a lovely old church with a school attached to it. Inside was lovely.

We went for a look around the church in the evening to light a few candles. It is a beautiful church and it was lovely that it was open for a look around.

St John's is a beautiful church right in the middle of Tralee town. Well worth a visit ..... who knows, you may even catch a wedding there.

A great piece of Victorian architecture with some nice stained glass. A peaceful corner away from the bustling town centre.

Stumbled across church while walking thru lovely Rose Gardens in park. One of nicer churches on trip. Due to service in progress, couldn't get good view of inside. Will revisit if we return.

I've been here since I was a child on holidays, and it has always been a majestic church. I recommend a visit to walk around
