This was on our list of must see items on the Ring of Kerry. What a beautiful church! Words cannot describe it, and pictures do not do it justice either. It was absolutely stunning inside and out. My husband is not a huge church-goer, and he said inside this church he felt relaxed & at ease...isn't that amazing?

Been there quite a while ago. Nice place, it looks even better from the inside. When I was there it was practically empty but there was something like ogran music lessons which was stunning.

Loved my visit to this church. It is steeped in history and is really spectacular to view from the outside. The inside of the church is equally as stunning to see and is so peaceful and spiritual to visit. There was information on the church available in the porch and also a visitors book to sign

There is no doubt that this church does not stick out of the town land in Cahersiveen! :) It is right in the middle of the town, with plenty of free parking around this church is perfect. It is the only church not named after a saint in ireland! It is beautiful and a real sight within all the ocean... More

The architecture is beautiful and it is very spacious inside. It is usually packed during a mass and parking can be difficult around the area but it is something you should see if you come down to cahersiveen.

This is the only Catholic Church named after a layperson, and for good reason. The Church bears the name of Daniel O'Connell, the Liberator, who was born in the parish and who worked in his political career in the early 19th century to bring about Catholic Emancipation. The church is a gorgeous, large edifice and quite remarkable for evening light... More
