Better menu required here. Starter was one slice of bread and wine choice was poor. Only one choice of house red and some fella in a green dress claimed he changed it from water. Good value for money though. The price of the stay was donated in a basket which wasn’t bad

After spending the best part of 3 Hours walking Sligo Town, this Beautiful Cathedral was a very welcome place to spend a quite few moments in contemplation and rest in a very tranquil athmosphere in the near centre of Sligo Town. Well worth a visit.

I stopped in to see Sligo Cathedral recently and found it to be wonderfully tranquil. I had the whoke cavernous place to myself on a late afternoon so it was very peaceful and quiet.
It has high ceilings, an ornate altar, beautiful windows and stately columns. The dark blue on the walls above the arches was unusual but it works.
Theres a massive church organ on high above the entrance doors.
The exterior is beautiful too in grey limestone and the spire dominates the city skyline.
There is a nice peace garden next door through the car park. It costs €3 to park here which is steep enough but if you park here you can leave it for the day and explore the Town.

The cathedral was designed by George Goldie between 1869-75. The exterior uses only one stone, a dark grey limestone which looks dull even when the sun is out. The interior is more attractive, but the detailing is heavy. There is no entry charge- but you are asked to respect the building which is considered sacred by the Sligonians.
There is no question but that the intention behind this building was to make its Church of Ireland neighbour look modest.

Beautiful peaceful place to reflect and pray. Your first view inside is the stunning stained glass windows, which throw a lot of light in. It’s very large inside and I immaculately kept.
Well worth seeing both inside and out.

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 joy to behold.

One of, I think, two cathedrals in this city ( the other belongs to church of Ireland). Thus gas a classical interior with several ornate chapels and an exquisite altar with detailed carvings. Nicely carved and painted stations of the cross, many effigies of the usual saints, An organ in a conventional organ loft over the west door and a larger than normal number of confessionals, where other chapels would be in older cathedrals.

Well worth a visit. Get a tour if you can.

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. Didn't venture indoors since there was a church service in progress and we didn't want to disturb anyone. But what we saw was worth the walk. Beautiful!

The cathedral is conveniently located downtown and, unfortunately, charges for parking. If you come mid day there will be plenty of spaces. The building itself is quite impressive.
