“St John's Cathedral with the tallest spire in Ireland.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Beautiful building well preserved and well situated. It catches the eye as you drive by as it is such a spectacular cathedral. It is worth a visit to experience the stone work at close hand and to admire the design in detail and to see the tall spire. It has undergone some renovation and it is in good repair.

“St John's (Catholic) Cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

A place of worship with very impressive architecture - tallest spire in Ireland at 94m (over 300 ft), and attractively refurbished on the inside. Free admission, with free leaflets in several languages. It is slightly outside the main shopping/tourist area, and the area around it is down-at-heel, but it is well worth a visit.
