It’s one of the greatest, perhaps biggest churches in and around Dublin. This place is mostly silent, less crowded and clean all the time. As usual, during cloudy day view is awesome 😍 Many great restaurants very close to this place so Must visit place.

A great amenity in Maynooth. Acres of parkland, Gothic Architecture and the fantastic chapel. Have lunch in Pugin Hall.... Harry Potteresque

The Old campus of Maynooth University is a beautiful place to meander. Parking is available on campus for a charge or externally on the street. Dogs are permitted on leads and there are some well laid out walking paths through the playing fields.

Please be aware that this is fully operating University, and neighbouring Catholic seminary sharing the same campus, so access to buildings and the art works and treasures is limited. However if you are lucky there are some phenomenal places here. These are hidden gems that...More
