This building is so worth visiting if your are in the area. We had a very interesting tour given by a gentleman of 86 years. He is passionate about the cathedral building, the organ and the bells. We climbed the bell tower, saw and rang the bells and were lucky enough to continue on to the top of the tower... More

It's an interesting Cathedral, but most of all due to the graveyard with lots of old graves and celtic crosses. Other than that there's not that much to offer, but if you happen to be in the area, it doesn't hurt to stop here and have a look!

Like many Churches in Ireland - the history of these magnificent old buildings stand the test of time.The old world beauty makes you want to enjoy and savour it's beauty in silence and reverence.

Very interesting historical cathedral. A lot of personal / tragic family history on the memorial brasses.

Old cathedral right in the middle of Killaloe. Nice to have a walk around especially the adjoining graveyard.

This feels like an empty space until you really look at the architecture and you realise that this allows you to see more of the building. It is is continuous use for about 800 years which is awe inspiring

Our guide knew the history of the Cathedral very well and a bonus was him playing the organ - a wonderful sound. My husband climbed to the top of the tower and enjoyed the view (although misty.)

The Ogham stone is so interesting and the ancient stone carved archway is lovely.

There is an Ogham Stone, around one thousand years old in the front of the inside in the Cathedral. Not always open
