A 15-minute walk from its Anglican counterpart along Hope Street, 1960s' "futurism" best describes the exterior of what's locally know as "Paddy's Wigwam." The huge interiors illuminated by natural light through the exquisite stained glass is worth the journey itself.

Strange looking from outside, apparently trying to appear as the crown of thorns. When inside the circular pews and central dais are very unusual but give this place a very special feeling.

Fantastic building beautifully laid out. We paid to go down into the crypt which was incredible and well worth the small fee paid. Guides were lovely and friendly and informative. Cafe outside was good.

This is a must see...majestic building which was built in the sixties..fantastic glass structure and like a tardis inside..bigger than you would imagine and the crypt below is good. It also has a nice cafe. Pop in to light a candle and say a prayer for somebody.

Fabulous oasis of calm and beauty - can walk from city centre. Wonderful stained glass and dias above the central high altar designed to resemble the crown of thorns. Take the crypt visit - a fascinating story of the grand design of the world's largest cathedral in the 1930s. This was never built save the vast crypt - and the... More

Commonly called 'Paddys Wigwam'. Very beautiful inside, free to enter. Plenty to see and admire even if you are not a catholic.

Very interesting permanent exhibition and again outstanding architecture. This... More
