After a week driving around the Clare, Cork and Kerry counties we returned to Killarney before departing. It seemed fitting to visit the Cathedral as it is central to the city. We stopped in after dinner and they were saying the rosary. How beautiful.

The church is right on the edge of town and easily reached from the town centre. The workmanship of the stone masons is immense.
