My review of this attraction is biased because it is where my husband's great-grandfather was married and where his grandfather was baptised. It was good to see the christening font where this took place. Others might not find the cathedral so interesting as it's not particularly old.

This is a fully functioning cathedral - so please do exercise appropriate decorum and behavior while visiting. Absolutely beautiful inside. just stunning. Painted soft yet vibrant colors, and filled with Waterford chandeliers. I have visited many cathedrals throughout Europe and this one will forever be etched in my memory.

A Cathedral that leaves everyone in awe of the building and its beautiful artifacts. Set in the shopping centre of Waterford, just off the Quay, opposite the Clock Tower. There is plenty of parking on the Quay and gives easy access to the Cathedral, which is on a pedestrian road.

Lots of history here. A nice Cathedral, not real large but worth a visit. Nice gifts are available and a voluntary contribution is asked.
