A lovely church to pop in to for some quiet time right in the middle of town. Well maintained. Tranquil place for reflection. Nice little shop attached for Mass cards, rosary beads etc

A beautifully maintained church, ideal for a quiet spell away from the hustle of Kilkenny. About 30 yrds away from the High Street up Friary Street. Nobody bothers you and no shop to go through, well worth a visit striking statues around the alter.
