When you arrive in Wexford, the towers of the Twin Churches are very good to be seen! When you see the outside it is just an ordinary church. But when you get in inside it is a big surprise. You have to visit!!

A must see if you visit Wexford the stained glass is superb and the visit during a mass with a choir will show off the acoustics of the churches, they are excellent especially the Assumption.

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.
