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

Well laid out, very informative! A must for history lovers. We happened upon it while walking , I hadn't noticed any signs to direct us towards it. Beautiful setting in a town steeped in history.

A wonderful old church, steeped in local history. There are recitals here ocasionally which must be something special. St. Flannan's is a must see if in the area, including its little side chapel and its ogham stone!

This Cathedral is of great aesthetic and historical interest. Access to the inside of the Cathedral would have enhanced our visit greatly.

The Cathedral was open and had so many interesting historical features from the ancient font to the Ogham Stone and the accent stained Glass window. We were lucky that the organist was practicing or we wouldn't have found out so much about the Cathedral. It is a definite must if in Killalloe
