Light and welcoming. History is literally written in the walls with a wealth of plaques charting the lives and deaths of many of Waterford's wealthier and powerful residents. A particularly moving plaque notes the loss of 5 Grandsons in the Great War. Lovely to walk...More

This was a must on our itinerary as it was the place an ancestor had been christened in 1812 and they had a copy of the event. Very helpful and informed staff.

The church itself is a wonderful display of period architecture. However, the contents are a lesson in history and how politics & religion have influenced history. While there is no cost to get in, they do ask for donations to support the upkeep.
