A true gem is St. Mary's Cathedral. Beautiful and just a short walk from the town center, St. Mary's immediately brought to mind the Bells of St. Mary's. Inside is just as beautiful and this should be a must stop for reflection and prayer.

This cathedral is a great place to visit and worship. It is one of those churches where you have to call and take time to see a prayer while also admiring some fantastic architectural building work. Don't visit Killarney without calling here.

This is a stunning building and we enjoyed the opportunity to sit and reflect in such beautiful surroundings. It was quiet and peaceful with a beautiful interior. Very close to the centre of Killarney.

We were staying in Killarney on an organised coach trip. We always like to look at the local churches and Cathedrals during our stay anywhere. Unfortunately there was a wedding on when we went to visit so we were only able to see a small part of the interior but what we did see was beautiful! What also was very... More

This Cathedral is very modern and very high. Most Cathedrals I have visited to date have been old so this had a different feel about it. There was a wedding on the day I dropped in.

We were limited for time and did not go inside, but the cathedral is beautiful from outside and wish we had more time.

It's not far off the main street in Killarney and I don't think we would have ventured unless we had been told about it by a friend. Very beautiful and well worth the visit.

We visiting St Mary's for a family wedding. The beauty of the building made the day that bit extra special. Its a lovely place to go for a little peace and reflection from the hustle and bustle of life. There are no admission fees, and you can stay as long or as short a period as you wish. If you... More
