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.

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
