Went to Mass on New Years Day and it was a lovely service with beautiful musical accompaniment. Great way to start a new year.

A stunning cathedral in the heart of Killarney! Walkable grounds, easy parking. Gorgeous architecture and stained glass windows. Loved the St. Therese alter and candles available for purchase. Don't miss it!!

It was a long walk from center of town but I couldn't wait to see it's ancient architecture. I just had to follow the tallest spires standing above all other buildings. A huge wedding was happening on December 31 so I could not enter. Un- fortunately.

The Cathedral can be seen from many vista's about the city. It is grand and is an architectual masterpiece. Mass and Confession are offered conveniently throughout the week and what an experience to participate in this beautiful Cathedral.

A true gem is St. Mary's Cathedral. Beautiful and just a short walk from the town center, St. Mary's immediately brought to mind the Bells of St. Mary's. Inside is just as beautiful and this should be a must stop for reflection and prayer.

This cathedral is a great place to visit and worship. It is one of those churches where you have to call and take time to see a prayer while also admiring some fantastic architectural building work. Don't visit Killarney without calling here.
