“Worthy of a wee peek inside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2016 via mobile

While you are in the area it is always good to visit the local cathedral and get another look at life and faith.
From front to back this has history and stories galore. From the days of the Vikings until the cathedral was rebuild in the 1770's there is much to read, study and gawk at.
Be sure to take a few minutes to think about the struggles which impacted people's lives and faith over the centuries. Really not that much unlike today except without handheld electronics.

“Beatiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2016

This was a reminder of the religious struggles form the time of
Henry VIII. The architect was renowned and had the unusual task of building Christ Church and the Catholic Cathedral.

“Very nice cathedral”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2016

Beautiful architecture. Wasn't quite as impressed the the inside. Still the inside is well worth the visit. Surprising that there was no admission fee. Very unusual in Ireland. We were only able to spend 20-25 minutes inside.

“If you like architecture then go visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2016

As one of the few free entry attractions in Waterford its worth checking out. the building itself is amazing and the ceiling is spectacular. definitely worth checking out if you have 20 min to spare while in Waterford.
