If you enjoy visiting various houses of worship as we do, then I would say that this church deserves your attention. Although it is not the most ornate church that we have come across it is both pleasing to the eye and soul.

We had talked to a local couple that were eating at the Olde Dublin Pub, who were going to a wedding. As we walked by St. Dunstan's Basilica, we saw them come out. With a wedding going on we did not go inside. This was the Jubilee Year of Mercy and St. Dunstan's Basilica had the Holy Door.

Having visted Gastonbury in England last year I was fascinated to find such a magnificent cathedral honouring this modest monk who rose to become the Arch Bishop of Canterbury...one of a long line canonized by the Roman Catholic Church. Today we think of Canterbury more in terms of the Anglican Communion making this place even more interesting. The building itself... More

Lovely Basilica and not busy when we visited. Some very interesting stain glass windows - some traditional, but some more modern styles which almost seemed out of place. Free entry, but obviously donations are welcome.

This is a very beauty church...if you are in Charlottetown it is a must see! The inside of St. Dunstan's Basilica is spectacular. The stain glass windows are breath taking. Enjoy your visit, you will not be disappointed.

This cathedral is beautiful and worth a visit. It is good to see an important religious structure being maintained. You can feel the presence of God.

Definitely a must to visit. The basilica is beautiful, I wish we would have been able to attend mass there. There is a neat display with a small boat used by a former bishop to travel to different communities. There is an impressive pipe organ that I imagine sounds awesome. Next time we will make sure to attend mass there.
