St Mary's Cathedral, Limerick Reviews

  • Unfriendly place, staff or priests? In this cathedral are very unfriendly, i was wore a hat and walked in one man was every rude and pointed me asked me to remove my hat even he could asked gently. If a man in a god’s place with no respect to the visitors I believe it is an evil!

  • It’s 900 years church, it’s have to money to maintain I know... but use the name for donations by forcing is not a proper way! You can said €5 is for admission and it’s for maintaining the church. But you said it’s donation and must to donate...

  • 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.

  • A beautiful step back into history. A must visit place when in Limerick.
