St. Mary's Cathedral, Killarney

4.7
Admire the combination of architectural influences at St. Mary's Cathedral. This Gothic cathedral is partly designed after Ireland's medieval churches. The brown-and-gray stonework and three stained-glass lancet windows represent traditional Irish features added by local architects. Visit the church between services to inspect the fine work inside. Consider observing a service to fully appreciate the somber beauty of the chapel.

  • Only the passage of time adds the patina of age to stonework and this lacks that. Worth a visit but do not have expectations that it cannot fulfill.  more »
  • Lovely Church. Many side chapels and beautiful architecture. Unfortunately, the service did not include the choir or the organ, that would have been nice.  more »

  • We stumbled upon this place in Killarney without even trying. It was immaculate. It was so peaceful and so beautiful on the inside and they have an area for you to take bottled holy water. I loved it ..what I needed and I didn't even know it.
  • Beautiful building from outside and inside. Inside the walls were made from rocks, same as outside. Huge open area inside, not easy to get good acoustic. Would prefer to be given text or displyed on the projector screens.
