This was a great church to visit. Full of history. Easy walk from the Castle. It does not require a lot of time.

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

The Cathedral firstly is a place of worship so visitors need to respect that. The cathedral receives no money from the state so it must fund itself. It has to be the most interesting building in Limerick! Remember the desk attendant will give tours if needed. Fantastic visit!

Quite an unexpected treat! This is a beautiful and evocative place that is really well worth a visit. It was built in the 12th century and is just drenched in Limerick and Irish history.It is well worth taking your time and spending an hour or two here and is within easy walking distance of both King John's castle and the...

We went for a walk after visiting King John's castle and stumbled on St. Mary's by accident. What a beautiful surprise! It is a classic Gothic structure and it has an interesting graveyard. A worthwhile visit for the religious as well as the historian traveler.

My husband and I were at St. Mary's on St. Patrick's Day, almost ready to go, and asked a question of the person that just appeared from the back room. It was Dean Sandra, and she ended up giving us a private tour of the church, complete with history lesson. The information she shared made this wonderful, beautiful old church... More

If you are on the Island in Limerick and at King Johns Castle then you have to walk down to the Cathedral. Amazing building and graveyard. Overlooking the shannon. Beautiful.

It was a beautiful location with parts rich in history but for four euros per person at first a 'suggested donation' and then when those in front asked it changed to 'admission fee.' The amount of space that you are able to see and the 1970 and later memorials make this an expensive and not worth the cost trip.
