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.

  • It is a beautiful place to go-to for peace of mind and say a few words to the man himself
  • Impressive Neo Gothic Cathedral designed by Pugin. The interior will divide opinion since he's refurbishment in the 1970s. The exposed natural stone and old Latin Alter are beautiful, the modern design look of the modern alter may not be too everyone's taste.
