Nice to visit, doesn't take long as not very big

Nice old church, not very big, centrally located in the town near the river, parking can be an issue in this area. Really old church beside it too which is worth a walk around

I found the church itself fairly average. But there are several quite remarkable artefacts to see, which make a visit well worthwhile. The Ogham Stone is apparently the only example known to bear inscriptions both in runic and ogham script. There is also a 12th century celtic high cross and a 13th century font. Finally there is also a romanesque... More

Had a nice time visiting the cathedral and grounds. The cathedral is in the lovely quiet town of Killaloe. Great place to simply enjoy.

St. Flannan's Cathedral style is mainly Gothic but there are traces of earlier styles. Check out the 12th century Romanesque Doorway, an Ogham Stone dating to about 1,000AD, a 12th century High Cross, the Cathedral's largest oak scree, 13th century font and its spectacular East Window-erected in 1865. Admission is free but it is worth noting the Cathedral is a... More

The Pope is the bishop of this church. The cemetery has dozens of different Celtic crosses. The church is beautiful. It is worth a visit.

We visited St. Flannan's while we were staying at East Clare Golf Village. From the outside you have no idea what is waiting for you when you go through the doors. This church is beautiful. We met the groundskeeper outside prior to entering and he gave us some nice history of the church as well as some of the townspeople... More

It was fascinating to visit this cathedral as there was so much to see from an architectural point of view, as well as the "imported" artifacts on display. The Romanesque archway dating back to about the twelfth century, which is to the immediate right of the main entrance, is noteworthy, as is the huge wooden screen which divides the nave... More

Building was interesting with a good amount of information on display outside. We were unable to go inside as it wasn't open when we visited.

Is well worth a visit. This Cathedral with its open, uncluttered interior and strong stone construction which adds to its solemnity is truely a sacred place to visit, rest and ponder upon God's great gift of life. The peel of the Cathedral bells, which are played from a keyboard with the knave are musically majestic. If you are lucky enough... More
