No longer a church apparently - rather a museum and music venue for which they charge admission. Particularly obnoxious old women guarding the doors against anyone who might want to pray there. Definitely one to avoid at all costs.

It's a church. Pretty old, interesting graveyard, nice grounds. The architecture did not wow. But if you're in Limerick, you'll be visiting this Church of Ireland church.

Worth the visit. It's magnificent. Short walk from the Strand Hotel, just over the bridge. The stain glass windows are so beautiful

This cathedral is absolutely amazing. The history in this place is phenomenal. I would have to say this is probably one of the most beautiful sites in all of Limerick. The day we were visiting, the organist was actually doing some playing also, so that was grand! If you're visiting Limerick as a tourist, this is a must see.

Wonderful wonderful church. So full of history and atmosphere. Great brochure - in full colour and easy to follow - made our visit complete although a tour guide would have been better.

St Mary's cathedral is an amazing atmospheric cathedral in Limerick city and they have free 1 hour 30 minute (roughly) classical music concerts every Wednesday free of charge ( donation optional). A great break for tired legs after sightseeing or from the rain!

To be honest, cathedrals have never done much for me, so take this review with that in mind. This cathedral is one of the three main attractions in downtown Limerick so you almost have to go; but while one has to admire the effort and workmanship needed to create such a church, it's not particularly noteworthy in design or history....
