We visited the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception recently. It is a beautiful place and appears to be well cared for. It was built in the 1800s in the Norman Style. The modern sanctuary modifications have the usual out-of-place look, but otherwise it is a...More

We walked to this cathedral (which is called Sligo Cathedral on Google maps) to get a glimpse of it at night, lit up by the exterior lights. The sun sets so late in April however, that we ended up just taking a few pictures outside....More

Beautiful old Church located in lovely Sligo. If you are ever there this is certainly a must see part of Irish history.

Sligo Cathedral is worth a stop...prayerful, colorful, spacious and centrally located for some midday peace or 2 hour adoration..

While driving through Ireland we came across this lovely old cathedra opened in 1874. It is well maintained and cared for and beautifully decorated inside. It felt a very peaceful place.
