There is a really nice feeling of peace in the church. From the outside the church appears to be too large for its surroundings but when inside very peaceful and you could sit for hours in thought or prayer. Worth visiting.

Not easy to remember Daniel O'Connell amidst the heavy surround. But quiet and reflective and of a style.

I just loved the tranquility to be found in this church - it is not as big as I expected it would be, but none the less, it has a quiet dignity which I found very appealing . It's a relatively new church, completed in the early 1900's but lets trust it is going to serve the good people of... More

Went to Mass on April 12, '15. We always attend Mass when we are in Cahersiveen. The church is a beautiful one that has been improved by the millions of euros raised to refurbish the exterior and soon, I think, the interior (i may have that wrong). It has that old, solemn church feel to it that many of us... More

This large Roman Catholic Church is located on the Ring of Kerry driving route in the Cahersiveen city centre. Due to the rather "recent" construction (it opened for mass in 1902), the church is in extremely good condition. It's the only Church in Ireland named after a non-religious figure (Daniel O'Connell, famous for leading the Irish-Catholic emancipation). If you are... More

Daniel O’Connel Memorial Church, Cahersiven this is a large, imposing, Victorian church on the main street. It is a typical style in the area - the ceilings inside are high with gothic style chunky pillars which give it a dark appearance. An attractive alter, ornate stone carving of the last supper and stain glass windows. The paintings of the Stations... More

for those who like churches this a great one with beautiful stained glas windows. I have been in it just for the building and did not visit the sunday service so can not tell how that was.

We enjoyed going into church and taking some pics.There was locals doing praying and such but paid no mind to us. It's amazing the history o this place. According to the one o the bnb's we stayed at informed us that it cost close to 10mill Euro to repair the place.Amazing what a small town will do for their local... More
