Knock basilica is lovely, a great peaceful place to sit and reflect. My favourite though is the new church, the “church of the apparition” it’s beautiful. A lovely place to spend an hour or so.

Knock is Ireland’s national Marian Shrine and is visited by hundreds of thousands of pilgrims every year. The range of things going on at Knock Shrine will come as a surprise to most people, even the regular visitor. So much positive energy inside the basilica. Peace of mind. Shrine, museum and everything around has got it's own great positive ambience. Good parking space. After long drive if u need to use Toilet, good facilities are available. Security and all the guys around helping you to follow the covid protocol are extremely friendly. I prayed after a long time and was really happy I went there. Really calm and divine atmosphere. Must visit place in Ireland.

Knock is a wonderful day out in a very special place. As in every other destination at the moment it is open in line with Covid guidelines. The Basilica is open for 3 masses daily with places limited to 200 people for each Mass. The Reconcilation chapel, the Shrine bookshop, Mass card offices as well as Cafe le Ceile are all open.
Had a wonderful walk around the beautiful and extensive Shrine grounds and the autumn colours are a sight to behold.
A place of peace that affords time for recollection during these challenging times. I Would recommend it to all for a special day out.

I have visited here on many occasions and every time there is an improvement. This time the basilica has been totally renovated and it is beautiful. Great credit to all involved. A must visit for any visitor.

Only the masses at the Basilica are presently taking place. You have to queue at least an hour in advance to get mass at the basilica until they increase the numbers going in. The apparition church is closed.

This location is well signposted and is close to Knock centre. It is a stones throw from the airport. Almost deserted in March you can wander around and learn the history of the place. As you might expect, there are a lot of shops selling religious trinkets, which lowers the tone a bit
