The delight of the unexpected such as the burial place of the Prince of Montenegro. Very well labelled features are a huge help. Allow a good twenty minutes to do it justice.

This Anglo- Norman Cathedral is quite a landmark on the city skyline and is easy enough to visit as it is en route to the castle. It too, like many cathedrals in Ireland, has been altered, added to, refurbished and the end result is sometimes a jumble of different architectural styles, but the Norman tower is pretty distinctive!

WE were passing by on our way from the castle and decided to look in. It is and impressive building and the desk attendant is most helpful, especially if you need a toilet.

Beautiful building giving a fascinating insight into the history of Limerick city. The bells were ringing while we were there giving a really special experience. My standout favourite attraction in the city.

The cathedral is wheelchair accessible at the front door or for people with buggies. There are toilets for the public at the back if you ask the desk attendant.

From King John's Castle you can view all the churches in the Limerick area and you can walk to several of them from there. No facilities available and not wheelchair accessable but King john's Castle is close by and it is.

This cathedral was neat to see, but it is not as fancy as some of the other cathedrals we have visited before. It has a lot of history and is true to the time it was built. However, it felt kinda cold and plain compared to others. Still glad we visited to see this type of cathedral. It is impressive... More
