Gorgeous newly-installed stained glass window. In an era when most churches are replacing their windows with clear ones, it was a joy to see the newly commissioned one themed around reconciliation, highlighting the Prodigal Son & Jesus. Gorgeous!

St Johns is a lovely Catholic Church in the Centre of Tralee. Clergy are nice and the locals are friendly and welcoming. Take time to visit for Mass or services. Enjoy.

We visited the Church in relation to searching for our clerical ancestors. The vicar and voluntary staff we met were very helpful. The Church is beautifully maintained and enhanced by a lovely rich red carpet which I understand was a gift from a church member.

St. John's is a stunning church. The stain glass windows are magnificent & the two water fonts, marble angels, are simply stunning! Well worth a visit.

We stopped in to see the interior of the church as we are enthusiasts. The church was built in 1780 but it looks brand new, it is stunning.
