Special day out!
Sep 2020 • Solo
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.

Lovely day

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.

Visually Impressive But A Bit Tacky
Mar 2020
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

TRIP TO OUR LADY OF KNOCK
Feb 2020
Last week we went to Dublin by air and then to knock by car .it was a wonderful experience to visit the church and the basilica .it is a small town and can be seen in a day. We attend the mass on Saturday evening at 07.30pm and on Sunday at 10.30am.we really enjoyed the mass as we experience the touch of our mother Mary. The place is so holy and we are sure mother Mary bless all the pilgrims who visits her.the are many bb around the place.
