“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

Called in to the cathedral when passing by and seeing many going in at 1.00 pm. Stayed for the service, have just checked that there appears to be Mass daily at that time. Church was almost full on a Monday! It turned out to be Candlemas and blessing of throats followed - most stayed for that after the Mass.
The building is well worth a visit, beautifully restored, and surely partly modernised with light coloured furnishings, wonderful lighting, and luckily for us the sun shone for almost the first time on our four day Glasgow visit. Stained glass had been beautifully cleaned and restored, and it is unusually well windowed for a church of its age? I thought the gold leaf decoration was well worth the effort and expense. One of the highlights of a first visit to Glasgow from Ireland

We've been there for a mass and it was awesome, really, it was on Ash Wednesday and priest had an inspiral speech. Worth it :-)

This Cathedral was amazing. It's a medieval cathedral and some parts are being restored. It's a must see.

“WOW”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

I went to a wedding being held in St Andrews' Cathedral, it has had a lot of refurbishment done to bring it up to the 21st Centuary, they have used a lot of moderen Glasgow artist's to work on the walls, the only problem I had was I could not hear what was being said from the alter, the microphone did not seem to be working, the voice was lost in the hight of the ceiling
