The two twin churches are very similar, build by the (people led by the) same priest; both opened in the same year, 1858; both are named after Our Blessed Mother. Interesting that this is exactly the year that Our Lady appeared to St. Bernadette in France. Anyway, do visit both of these churches, and step as well into the third... More

Sit and reflect in peace and quiet. This Cathedral is near the Franciscan Abbey and the Opera House. The narrow streets are quaint and the shops in this area are close by have good variety with pubs, restaurants and fashion stores.

Lovely old churches with very interesting history and some fantastic detail to the interior and exterior of the building There is a lovely enclosed case with a little boy enclosed and there is a sad tale to go with it .Both churches are near one another and one wonders how come they were built so close many years ago.

The welcoming view of the Twin Spires as you approach Wexford is a sure sign of being home. Both Churches are amazing both inside and out. Well kept grounds and beautiful interiors. Both having good parking facilities for which you pay when not attending church.

Very easy short walk between the two churches. It is unique to see two churches with identical measurements and building materials. The outside entrance way are in cobblestone (small coloured stones in concrete) with interesting patterns and the year each was built. This feature is called Wexford Mosaic. As well, the fence is made of an ornate iron fence. Inside... More

Bride Street church in particular is a beautiful peaceful haven. It is also the church of the closed order of the Adoration Convent, a small group of nuns who dedicate their lives to the adoration of the sacred heart. If you are luck enough to call in to the church at around 17.00 you might just catch the nuns at... More
