St. Canice Cathedral - Review

The St.Canice Cathedral is a place of worship since the 6the century. The Cathedral is named after St Canice- an Irish Abbot and a prominent missionary.

Some of the highlights include:

The church is well maintained and is sure to transport you back in time. Tourists and locals love to explore the cathedral grounds which offer an experience that is ethereal, intimate and spiritual.

St. Canice Cathedral, Kilkenny Reviews

  • The guides are very knowledgeable. There was plenty of information to read so that you knew what you were looking at. The view from the tower was breathtaking.

  • Great example of the mediaeval architecture found in Kilkenny. Round Tower a must-see for tourists (who aren't scared of heights)! The cathedral itself is well worth a visit and regularly hosts live music, particularly church/choral music.

  • We did a self tour with a map. There is so much to see and learn. The round tour has updated wooden stairs like climbing a ladder. Every 20 steps to a landing and turn.

  • Bit of a let down. Never had to pay to get into a Cathedral before. The printed tour guide was a bit sparse & uninteresting. With a little bit more imagination, the potential is there for a really interesting tour. Perhaps individual audio device like they do in Cork Gaol? At present I would say, pop in if you've nothing else to do but I wouldn't go out of my way.

  • A fantastic experience,very well organised and if you are up to it climb to the top of the round tower for fantastic views of Kilkenny city.
