Loved this site. Church was beautiful. Walking the grounds was so peaceful. Loved the stain glass. Having the stations of the cross outside was incredible. I had a wonderful visit with my husband. Would definitely visit this site again.

The Church is beautiful and a delight of Gothic architecture. The Shrine of Saint Oliver Plunkett, Archbishop and Martyr is wonderful and a place of Peace and Prayer. The Reliquary containing the Martyrs Head is tasteful, moving and ornate. A "must see" place to visit...More
