One of the great wonders of our country, I find a beautiful serenity Every time I visit this gem. A must for visitors. I have a fascination for churches and cathedrals and this one is right up there with the best of them.

An undiscovered gem. It is truely a beautiful building steeped in history. It is not always open but was empty apart from us when we visited. Also home of high cross of Tuam. Hard to find parking close by.

Any visit to Tuam should include a visit to both Cathedrals in the town. This is the Church of Ireland cathedral, locates at the bottom of High street. A building of wonder from my childhood, best appreciated as a adult.
