Another visit to this special place. There is always a helpful person on duty to assist with any queries and to sell some trinkets as a momento. Well worth going to see this Cathedral.

The cathedral is very interesting because it is full of works of art. The best thing to see is the restored organ, the tomb of James Rice and the Fitzgerald family memorial. A free offering can be left for the maintenance of the cathedral.

A totally relaxing and informing visit with no charge just donations. Excellent memorials and a nice little shop at the entrance. Stop and step inside, relax and praying is optional

The inteior of this church is unusual in that it divided in two by the organ loft. In other respects, it is quite plainly decorated and very serene.

If you have 10 mins in the Viking Triangle drop in, it's free (donations welcome). The stain glass is beautiful and worth a view, wonderful history within this historic building.

Christ Church Cathedral, built in the 18th century in the Georgian Neoclassical-style has a simple elegance that I thought set it apart from virtually all the other churches we saw in Ireland. It is Anglican rather than RC, and that might account for some of...More
