Saint Carthage's Cathedral reviews
When I entered the place the music was being played giving the place a spiritual touch, you would be amazed by the amazing ambience that takes you into a journey to find yourself peacefully emersed in a prayer. The church is part of the historical identity of Lismore and it's been renovated very well without changing the original authenticity of the building.
A beautiful tranquil place. You dont need to be religious to appreciate it. Wonderful community who really care and rely on each other. A must visit. Appointments can be made to see the Cotton Library which is truly spectacular.
