This amazing church has beautiful stain glass windows and a beautiful alter. We had our wedding mass in this church last year and all of our guests had great things to say about it. This church is well worth a visit.

St Mary's Church is a quiet respite and worth a quick visit. It is simply decorated compared to many cathedrals. It is located just off of High Street in old town Killarney. It is worth a quick pop in.

We spotted this Cathedral as we drove past in the dark. It looked amazing as it was beautifully illuminated. By daylight it also did not disappoint. A stunning building of grey stone, carefully crafted cloisters internally and wonderful stained glass windows. Well worth a visit.

Still a working religious site, St. Mary's Cathedral is in very good condition and is the most easily seen landmark in Killarney.

St. Mary's RC Cathedral borders the park and is just a short walk from the main part of Killarney. Imposing architecture and stunning stained glass windows make it a worthwhile stop on one's itinerary.

The cathedral is breathtaking and so worth a visit. It is a fantastic monument but still so woven into the lives of the locals. Absolute priviledge.
