Wonderful old cathedral in the heart of Lismore. Still in operation today. The walls are full of history. The library was closed when we were there but that would be worth a visit.

no modern or fancy detail in this church, just an amazing step back in time, you can almost feel the people and history of past ages praying here, because of it lack of modern grandure you can feel the atmosphere is all the more poignant.

Lovely place with some stunning stained glass and a beautiful brass eagle book stand. Interesting place, very atmospheric and sits in a very beautiful graveyard full of bluebells when I visited.

Fine traditional cathedral with at least one beautiful old stain-glass window and some remnants of building that goes back 8 or 9 centuries.Perfect for quiet reflection.

The open door looked most inviting....so we went in to be greeted by a welcoming sign which indicated we were encouraged to visit. This building is a treasure and very well maintained. Definitely worth a visit for those interested in the architecture of these buildings.

We loved our visit to the cathedral and were fascinated by its unusual layout. It was also nice to see that it is in use for regular worship services.
