I've viewed a lot of churches but nothing like this. The inside architecture and design is astounding. There is a tremendous amount of history (readings and artifacts) to view. You could easily spend an hour here looking at everything. The stained glass windows are beautiful.

The biggest church in Ireland. GReat history and testimonials. Entrance fees a bit high’ but apparently necessary to maintain the inftastructure.

A nice way to relax & be at peace by taking it all in of the history & spectacular architecture of the place. Affordably priced with ticket able to be reused to go back to at another time. Worthwhile visiting.

I'm not sure about guided tours but I do think there is an audio tour. We walked it on our own. There's a lot of cool history to read but we only had about 1.5 hours.
