A lovely 19th century cathedral, with some beautiful stained glass and a beautiful Pipe Organ, which is used on Sundays for Mass, with the choir at 12 noon. A variety of church music is sung, from contemporary to classical and plainchant.

Nice place to visit if you're in Limerick. You have a nice walk through the city to get to this Cathedral. Didn't got in though.

they charge an admission fee. no house of worship should require money to enter. I opted to spend my money at the bar across the street instead.

This beautiful building has many outstanding stained glass windows and statues to read about and admire. In existence for more than 150 years, the spirituality of the place is almost tangible as the prayers of generations permeate the very walls. Well worth a visit and if you get a chance to hear the organ, even better!

Staff are friendly and willingly share stories of the cathedral's history. Stunning architecture with curved ceilings, turrets and beautiful stained glass windows. Free to enter, but they do appreciate donations.

St. John's is a bit off the beaten path, however, a lovely walk through the Limerick neighborhoods. Beautiful adoration chapel.
