St Mary's Cathedral, Limerick Reviews - Write a Review
St Marys Cathedral Built over 800 years ago, you can really feel the grandeur of the building once you step foot inside. The large stone arches and vaulted roof, looms protectivly over it's inhabitants, and upper storey corridors really imparts the importance yet functionality of the site. As well as religious duties this Cathedral also housed the Bishops of Limerick and provided the perfect environment for undertaking any religious business or entertaining any important guests. I can sit here for hours and imagine the services that would have been said here over the last 800 years, Masses, Christenings, Weddings etc... I can imagine the people who once sat and ate in the bishops great hall, people bustling through the upper corridors busy on the days business. It's the architecture of this building that continues to draw me back to it again and again. The Antiquarian-April
Beautiful 800+ year old Cathedral, and very reasonably priced at €4 per person. Sadly, we went the week before a new bishop was being added, so there was lots of cleaning going on, but the history and grandeur of this building was still there. I'm not religious at all, but I love churches because they document history, and this one was well worth the visit.
Beautiful historical Church, there is a cemetery where you can walk into and pay respect. When entering you will be asked to contribute 4 EUR to help restoring this beautiful landmark of Limerick.
One of the highlights of Limerick visit. Peaceful, beautiful church was quiet and interesting. Informative placards provided interesting highlights of history and descriptions of beautiful stained-glass and historical fittings in the church. Well-worth a visit for the pilgrim or for religious history buff.
Very impressive for an 800+ year old church. Went when a girl was auditioning for a violinist position in the choir. The sound reverberating from the old walls really enhances the beauty of the song and building. The stained glass were also intricate and beautiful. Cost 4 euros to enter.
