The Cathedral is located in the central area of Waterford. It has Architectural Significance in that the same person , John Roberts, designed both this Catholic Cathedral as the Protestant (Christchurch) one located only 5 minutes walk away.

Waterford Cathedral is verry nice, and as your personally tour the cathedral, history can be felt in every corner of the building. This is surely a place that should be a on every Waterford visitor's list.

A very beautiful cathedral in the heart of Waterford. Located right near the Waterford Crystal. After visiting Europe, you get tired of all the beautiful churches.

This building is so inspiring and a peaceful place to visit after as hectic day shopping . It is well worth a visit as its a fantastic building and draws to to it lovely arctecture and paintings in the building itself.

The cathedral is another in a town with unusual and interesting aspects - museum and crystal factory are exceptional. The cathedral facade is a bit plain and the inside is a bit the same as others we have seen. Pity we had hoped for more.

Friendly people. Didn't like having to walk over the bridge from the rail station to the centre of town.

This is a very old Cathedral, built I think in 1795. As Waterford City is the oldest in Ireland, the City and Cathedral are well worth a visit.

Lovely glass. Lovely staff. Too much for the kids. I was scared they would break something. But lovely place.

Just wanted a late Mass & joined the first Mass for the 'Do This in Memory' programme for the local boys school! What a giggle.. Beautiful Church, fabulous choir, booming organ and abs fab acoustics - would love to hear a full carol service with a full Symphony Orchestra in there... Will remember that Mass for quite some time....
