Highly atmospheric building ..... so picturesque. Church bells ring on the hour ... adds to the charm. Rooms are warm, clean, have a desk. I usually opt for the student / budget rooms / shared bathrooms. Brilliant value out of season !

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.

Such a lovely place to visit in Maynooth. Green and more green as you walk the grounds in front and behind the college. The chapel was amazing and the tour provided by Brendan was really interesting with historical bits we have never heard before.

A venerable seminary, founded in 1785, it became a full-fledged university 20 years ago. The old buildings, designed by Pugin, still exude that solemn quality that one expects to find at an institute of 3rd level education. The new library and an ever expanding new...More

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