went to sunday mass here it was crowded,the mass was only half hour and the priest had a wonderful singing voice,the two churches were built near each other by the same archetect,well worth a visit even if you are not religious.

Whilst a regular user of either church on a sunset weekday pm come in to either of these for quiet and mediation as the rays shine through either rose windows...they have many features but these are standouts

Amazing to think that Wexford has 2 identical churches within walking distance of each other. It's worth a look even if you aren't particularly religious because, the stain glass work is absolutely beautiful.

Both worth a quick pop in if you are passing to admire the fine Victorian Gothic revival craftsmanship. Viewed from the other side of the river the effect of nearly twin churches is rather odd but memorable.

Beautifully maintained and a lovely sense of tranquility in side. The exterior is also a lovely pink-red stone.

Harry Clarke (1889 to 1931) was responsible for over 130 Stained glass commissions and a great pleasure to sit in the peace and solitude of the Church of the Immaculate Conception and reflect on his major work above the altar an enlightening experience.

Beautiful spiritual oasis with an unbroken succession over 140 years of perpetual eucharistic adoration. The stained glass window by Harry Clarke must be seen and the choir accompanied by the Telford organ must be heard.

The most interesting thing about these two churches is that they were built at the same time and only a few hundred yards apart. The design of both is the same, which must be unique in Irish churches. They are both spacious and well laid out and it is good to see they are still in daily use for religious... More
