The Most Interesting Church in Belfast

This is a small church, but way more interesting than St. Anne's Cathedral. Well worth the detour to see it..

A delightful church. The only place in Belfast though we were told not to leave our bags. Every where else we were told was very safe.

John Betjeman rated this church as having one of the nicest ceilings in the British Isles. Mostly it is a church for prayer and contemplation.Go inside and appreciate the full beauty of this church.

What a stunning church, very easy to find and offers a beautiful mass - we attended the 09.30 Sunday mass and were completely bowled over by the beauty of this church, the Priest and sermon .. all very lovely.

This downtown Belfast Catholic Church is interesting architecturally. From the outside, it looks like a huge cathedral with battlement-like turrets. Inside you realize that there is little depth to the nave, which is wider than deep. The look is modern, with predominantly white wood and a lot of light. The location is easy walking distance from the Town Hall square.

Beautiful ceiling that would be appreciated by art lovers. The church shape and design allows you to appreciate the plaster work.
