“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Very disappointing inside. Looked like it hasn't been maintained or refurbished in any way in years. Horrible looking carpet up the aisle, which looked completely out of place in this Cathedral. Needs work!

“A must see!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

The church was absolutely stunning! I attended a Sunday mass and the members were very welcoming and nice. Father Willie was the presiding minister that Sunday and he was wonderful! If you are looking for a traditional Irish service to attend or Cathedral to view, this is the one to see!

“Nice Old Church to Visit”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We were just driving down the road a discovered this old church. The interior was closed but the outside was well worth the 30 minute stop. No guides here but also no crowds.

“gorgeous!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Park there and walk around to St John's Castle. It's worth it but get there early or you'll miss out.

“Churches are just beautiful in Ireland!!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

amazing to see the architecture and imagine how it was built - so many years ago before all the machinery that we have available now.
