This church is huge, gothic revival, and lovely. The only Catholic Church in Ireland not named after a saint.

After such a long drive to get to Cahersiveen, its nice to break the trip and just walk around. This nice church in the middle of town and is slightly different from some of the other ones is just that nice break.

There are so many beautiful churches in Ireland and this one rates right up with the best of them. The ONLY church in Ireland not named after a saint. If you are doing the Ring of Kerry, don't miss this stop in Cahersiven.

Beautiful church in the center of the town. Not your typical design with the tall steeple like you see in other Catholic churches in Ireland. Nice stain glass and altar.

Construction began in 1875 and first Mass was in 1902. This is the only church in Ireland not named after a saint but a lay person who was born in Cahersiveen 100 years previously. In the graveyard the grave of Mgr Hugh... More
