The murals and stained glass are beautiful. I found the architecture very different from the other cathedral here in Ireland. I believe it was built sometime in 1700 and the name is "The Holy Trinity".

Thanks to the depredations of history, in a country that has been Christian since the fifth century and Roman Catholic since the twelfth, this handsome Georgian pile, completed in 1793, is actually the oldest RC cathedral. It was built shortly after the nearby Anglican cathedral, by the same architect and to the same principles, but is inevitably more complex within;... More

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. The Cathedral is usually open from morning to about 6:15pm (later on Saturday due to the vigil mass). If you are there... More
