Christ Church Cathedral - Review

Set on the site of an 11th century Viking Church which was the wedding site of English Knight Strongbow and Irish Princess Aoife, this cathedral was later undertaken by Normans in the early 12th century and was rebuilt was a Gothic Cathedral that was again refurbished in the 18th century.

The history of the place is as captivating as its architecture and the stucco is undeniably admirable. The stained glass windows with intricate detailing and the pillar which is last reminiscence of the medieval cathedral are worth observing on your visit. The latest building is attributed to Architect John Roberts.

Christ Church Cathedral, Waterford Reviews

  • A welcoming people, will make you feel right at home. It brought me inner peace to spend the Sunday morning there. The dean is an amazing woman, sharing the message through simplicity than extravagance. The church in itself is built over an earlier site. It is beautiful and relaxing on the inside- ornately done ceiling, stained glass window, Waterford crystal chandeliers.

  • Lovely unusual Church of Ireland Cathedral. Well worth a visit

  • A fine Georgian Cathedral which is sited on a place of Christian worship for almost 1,000 years. Construction of this present building began in 1773 and completed by the same John Roberts who designed the Roman Catholic Cathedral in 1779. This gives Waterford the unique distinction of being the only city in Europe where the protestant and catholic cathedral’s were conceived by the same man. It is an active place of worship today and is a parish church.

  • Waterford has two Cathedrals and both were designed by John Roberts. The Georgians were ruthless in destroying older buildings to build their own style. They dropped bits of masonry from the roof to persuade the bishop to destroy the Gothic cathedral that once stood here. Whether this was a good swap or not is a matter of opinion so no 5 stars!

  • Same architect as the Cathedral in Barronstrand street. Beautiful inside.
