I really enjoyed the church it is very old . It also paid tribute to the Jews and Poland. The church organ is amazing . Well worth a look.

Christ Church Anglican cathedral is one of two cathedrals in Waterford uniquely designed by the same architect John Roberts who lived to the side of the cathedral.

Visited here to see this wonderful part of the Viking Triangle and the church does show its history. 16th century warri to latter day warriors are memorialized here. Lovely we'll keep the Cathedral is. Be Quiet, walk and talk softly

Free but we gave a donation. They have lots of history inside. From old graves to original foundations. This was a great stop on our tour

On entering the Cathedral you will see a jaw dropping gorgeous Waterford Crystal Chandelier hanging from the ceiling, it is amazing. I could sit just looking at it all day. It is stunning.
