St Mary's Catedral is impressive!!!! It is beautiful outside, but inside it is amazing. Also it looks like new because of the way it has been preserved.

The outside is quite amazing but once you go inside it really is breath taking. The stainglass in the windows, the pipe organ and most of all the feeling of peace inside is worth the time to see this place.

We wandered into St Mary's Cathedral during a wedding, nevertheless we were able to see the beauty and light a candle. One thing that I found interesting is that this old building had closed circuit televisions everywhere. If worshippers or wedding guests had filled both sides of the nave, they would still have seen everything.

The cathedral looks very impressive from the outside, but the inside is very special. The brickwork with supporting stained glass is stunning. A must see cathedral whether you are religious or not.

We were impressed to see how beautiful this cathedral is on the inside. I have never seen this type of stonework inside a cathedral anywhere. It is free to visit and within walking distance of the shops and restaurants in Killarney.

This lovely stone Cathedral is a fine example of the Gothic Revival style. Its construction was interrupted by the Famine. On the grounds, there is a memorial and burial site for child victims of the Famine.

We walked to this cathedral from our hotel and then over to Killarney National Park. This is a beautiful cathedral with wonderful architecture and stained glass windows. It was a warm, sunny day in May and this was a nice, cool stop on our walk.

This Catholic Cathedral is a peaceful sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets outside and a great place for quiet reflection

St. Mary's Cathedral is well located at the west end of Killarney and you can get into the lovely town park easily from here. There is ample carparking. The interior is delightful and a nice place to sit and have a thoughtful few moments, with lovely stained glass windows and refurbished interior.
