Downtown Tralee has plenty of nice pubs and restaurants. My wife and I walked through the area and stumbled upon St. John's Church. This is a mid-sized Gothic cathedral in the center of town. Many of the stained glass windows have themes on the life of St. Brendan, who was born here. He is purported to have been the true... More

You can't miss this church - it has a huge tower! The inside has some exceptional items of beauty - the stain glass windows, the stations of the cross, quite a bit of mosaic, a Baldacchino (google it!). This is my favourite church visited on this trip (and we say quite a few). If you're in Tralee, don't miss visiting... More

One word: Magical. The church is immaculate and magical in every sense. The church is impressive from ground to steeple. Saint John's cleanliness, art, architecture, and overall atmosphere is truly spectacular. The two entrance angel statues, marble accents, and every stained glass window are brilliantly crafted. Father Bernard Healy and his assistant David, helped us create the most beautiful and... More

I don't only like the atmosphere in St. John's but also its beautiful windows - and the nearby "Rosengarten", where you can sit and relax.

This church is beautiful and very impressive. When you enter the church the light bounces off the walls and there is a lovely warmth in the church. It is in the town centre and you can drive in to it from the street. I made the mistake of driving back out this way only to discover I was driving against... More
