If you are visiting this part of the country you have to visit St. Peters church. When you approach the broad steps outside you are entering a wonderful feast for the senses. The scent as you walking in is the first thing that hits you. It is incense mainly but there are other scents that mingle with it that make you feel welcomed. The church looks dark but this seems to make the light from the stained glass windows more intense and colourful.
Obviously the main attraction here is the head of St. Oliver Plunkett. It is fascinating to see if not slightly strange. Probably unique in Ireland. The story of his death and martyrdom is told really well on the walls surrounding his display. It is a really interesting display.
The rest of the church should be explored. It really is a wonderful place to meander around and explore it's history. It is a must see for any person visiting Ireland.
