If you go to Ireland you are most likely going to see a church or two. In this church when I looked closely there were these beautiful angels "holding" up the rafters. It was a beautiful detail. Also in this church there is a little side room or entrance that has beautiful tile work in it as well. It was... More

This is an unusual church, but very beautiful. Make sure you look up when you are inside and admire the woodwork. A very peaceful place with an interesting history

Their church is very nice and the homily was great on the Sat. Mass. I love the Irish cross in front of the church!

The church recently went through a renovation in recognition of its 150 year anniversary and it is stunning. There is tile and intricate design that we really enjoyed. Definitely worth a visit whether... More

Such a treat to see such an old church in a vibrant village like Kenmare that obviously has an active congregation.
