With error from navigation, we visited the wrong church first. It was beautiful too. But after walking down the road we found the real St. Flannan's Cathedral. Truly beautiful!!! Definitely worth the stop!!!

Very simple, atmospheric church with very interesting plaques. We also enjoyed a walk around the graveyard. The Cathedral is well worth a visit and visitors should support the lovely building.

An unexpected magical moment happened to me at the Saint Flannan's Cathedral in Killaloe. I had never heard of St. Flannan before. I found the place quiet, peaceful and inspirational. Perhaps it was the various ancient artifacts. Perhaps it is the classical antiquity of the...More
