Monumental tribute to a colossus in Irish history is worthy of a prayer

Entering Cahersiveen is little different to many other Kerry towns. Usual two story and three story streetscape which in the case of this town is one straight street. In reality... read more

Entering Cahersiveen is little different to many other Kerry towns. Usual two story and three story streetscape which in the case of this town is one straight street. In reality it could be called 'Main Street' but has different street names between side streets. In the middle of all of this is Church Street. Arriving from the north east, suddenly... More

Extremely peaceful place to visit. Restoration was worth it. On each visit here I notice, no matter what day of week, flowers always nicely done and fresh.

Daniel O'Connell Memorial Church is the only church in Ireland named after a layman, such is the esteem that Daniel O'Connell is held. Beautiful from outside but we wereunable to stop and go inside.

A beautiful church in the middle of Cahersiveen. If you are planning on taking in a mass, make sure you check the schedule. Because it's a small town, there are alternating Sundays. This church is the only one in Ireland named after a layman… beautiful exterior and interior. Well worth a look as you are visiting the town. Seems that... More

Truly this church is one of the most beautiful in Ireland. It was such a tranquil and beautiful haven. There are so many interesting details but moreover a most incredible atmosphere of peace permeates the entire church. Lovely stained glass windows contrasting with the stone pillars. Really not to be missed by anyone interested in spiritual experiences.

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.

Thank Gerodonnell
