  • Nice and old cathedral with outstanding history. BUT, never visited the inside. Why? 5 euros recommended donation. Wanna pass without donating? They will talk to you asking why no donation. No money on you? Oh no problem, they told us they will wait until we're back from the ATM. RECOMMENDED DONATION, if you know what I mean. Careful they don't step on your feet until you pay if you insist.

  • Beautiful architecture, peaceful grounds. Awestruck to stand in a nearly 1,000 year old church - that remains an active church to this day.

  • Given the entrance is free of charge, it's a place worth popping in. Interesting story and interior, parking available close by.

  • A peaceful place within walking distance from the center of Limerick. Costs 5 Euro to get in and walk around. Not crowded so you could walk around and feel the history of the place.

  • Beautiful old cathedral. A great stop while discovering Limerick. Take the time to enjoy the windows and the ancient architecture.
