Enjoyed the self guided church tour. The cost was around 4 Euros I believe . The folks at the front desk were very helpful and answered any questions that we asked. The brochure that guided you were very informative.

A beautiful church and grounds in an historic city. I could have spent hours in St. Mary's, sublime. Beautifully kept with a fascinating history. I am looking forward to visiting again.

This cathedral has so much history, and so many interesting things to see. Be sure to look for the leper's hole. There is a brochure available, but I think there is much more to learn. I would suggest asking if there is someone available to help you out. We spoke with David O'Brien from the Bishop's Palace, and he gave... More

Beautiful Cathedral both externally and internally with lots of history. We went into the Cathedral after being recommended by our walking tour guide. A charge of 4 euros is requested to contribute to the upkeep of the Cathedral which we where happy to pay.

Visited the cathedral in November. Just over the river from the town. Beautiful Cathedral, well worth a visit. The graveyard outside is also very interesting. A small donation is asked for the up keep on entrance.

I was so happy to visit St. Mary's Cathedral , especially when it is the oldest building in Limerick. The quiet of the cathedral allowed for a peaceful visit.

It is absolutely amazing to think that something built in 1168 can still be standing and in quite good shape. The architecture hasn't changed much since then for more modern churches in the centuries after. The church is still being worked on to survive for many more years but what is there is just amazing. Its a few dollars to... More
