“A haven of peace for all religions and none”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

The building has a peculiar charm and provides a quiet space to get away from the bustle of the busy town. The location is ideal and it is within easy walking distance of the hotel.

“Mass on Sunday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

How can you possibly rate a church poorly? Lovely to look at and wonderful to worship with the locals and other tourists. The kneelers and benches have built in Catholic guilt, not comfy but who cared.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The church is lovely from the outside, but signage indicated that visitors were not welcome unless they are attending services.

“beautiful old Catholic church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Not too far from the center of town Beautiful tall Celtic Cross in the front parking lot. We were surprised to find a headstone -- a priest with our same family name. Very pretty inside, nice wood and white wood too. Peaceful mood. I lit candles My husband attended Sunday mass there-- which was combined with a funeral for a local man.
