Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Came here on my honeymoon to light a candle for my grandpa. Happy it was open and empty. It's a big, beautiful church with a lot of ornate work on the inside. It felt very peaceful and I was able to say some prayers. There is St. Anthony's Store right across the street if you want to get religious gifts/items.

Interior of the church is something to behold. The architecture is very well done and the space within is breath-taking

As you walk around the city shopping centre don’t hurry past this huge Franciscan church because it houses the most sumptuous mosaics. Even the small stations of the cross are works of art.

No matter your religious beliefs or lack there of, this beautiful old church is well worth a visit for so many reasons.
It is large and ornate with many fantastic mosaics and sculptures however it is so much more than that. Be cognisant of the fact that this is an active church which has services and people dropping in throughout the day, it is never empty, so be respectful.
It is the many side alters and areas of adoration that make it special for me, even if you are not Catholic or even Religious at all, the feeling of peace and contemplation to be found within this church is just spectacular.
The alter to St Anthony is an especially busy area within the church, with people constantly dropping in to light a candle and ask for favour from this well loved saint.
So do your soul or spirit or whatever you believe in a favour and find a quiet area of this church, sit down, give yourself a chance and think of nothing for a wee while. Given a chance the sense of peace which will envelope you is a modern day miracle.
No matter what your belief ( or none) pay this sanctuary a visit, you'll be glad you did.

From the outside this Francisan church looks enormous. Its so beautiful inside. Very high ceilings and lovely mosaics. Lots of Saint statues..including one of my favourite St Anthony. Very peaceful. Nice way to spend a few minutes with God.

A 1950s (I think) and rather massive Roman Catholic church built in a Byzantine style. It looks like it belongs in a Mediterranean city not tucked behind a courthouse in a soggy Irish city! Everything about it is done on the grand and very ornamental scale.

Reminds me of my childhood when my father insisted we go to church every Sunday. Good few people in there when I visited.

But church near centre of town: separate from church has a building with office. It's a beautiful red building with double doors to enter - and the double doors are beautifully stained glass. Simple front like the other Franciscan churches I have seen this trip but this church is much larger
