We stopped by for an unofficial tour, it was a fabulous experience. The craftsmanship and care have created and maintained this beautiful place of worship. A great place to pray for safe travels.

We walked past this Cathedral on our walking tour with Jack and he discussed its history. It is the oldest Roman catholic cathedral in all of Ireland and dates to 1793-1796. It has a most interesting facade, which is neoclassic in style with Palladian overtones. There are half columns along the front of the building and windows with either curved or triangular pediments. The central pediment is filled with statues. What was curious were the statues on top of the roof. When we were there there was a large sea gull on Mary's head and when we came back a hour later he was still there. Just an odd image. The Cathedral was renovated and has 10 Waterford crystal chandeliers which must be exquisite when lit. As the church was closed, we di not get to see them.

Look out for the stations of the cross sequence of murals- 14 of them. Entrance is €5 for seniors. We always try to fit in a short cathedral visit whenever we get to a new City. It’s good for the soul. Lighting a candle for lost loved ones is a ritual for us.

The outside of this Cathedral is somewhat deary. Big imposing facade. The interior is a stark contrast. Really pretty is only way to accurately describe.
