This beautiful building has many outstanding stained glass windows and statues to read about and admire. In existence for more than 150 years, the spirituality of the place is almost tangible as the prayers of generations permeate the very walls. Well worth a visit and if you get a chance to hear the organ, even better!

Staff are friendly and willingly share stories of the cathedral's history. Stunning architecture with curved ceilings, turrets and beautiful stained glass windows. Free to enter, but they do appreciate donations.

St. John's is a bit off the beaten path, however, a lovely walk through the Limerick neighborhoods. Beautiful adoration chapel.

We thoroughly enjoyed the age and grandeur of this cathedral today. Obviously it is quite old, but the local still love and respect the church by choosing to bury loved ones in and around the grounds. Very nice docents at the door.
