Not only large, but charming. History of the area, and the church are everywhere. Truly interesting in it's naming, and the Pope's contributions to the building materials!

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
