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

An insight into the turbulent history of Ireland can be had at this lovely small cathedral on the shores of Lough Derg. The tower is a fierce and powerful fortification, the cruciform church, now a Church of Ireland, a lovely warm space that brought me home to my own childhood experience of the Episcopal faith. It's really worth a visit... More

Worth a quick visit. I wouldn't drive 50 miles to see it, but if you are in the area call in. It is a functioning Anglican church dating back centuries, overlooking the river Shannon. I met briefly with the man who does the tours and he appeared very knowledgeable.

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!
