The Church is in the ecclesiastical style of the Tudor period. It is cruciform in shape. It’s the only church that is wider than its long. The original High Altar, Pulpit and Altar Rails were of Irish Oak but were replaced with marble when the...More

This is a lovely, peaceful church in the city centre and well worth a visit but what makes it super special is the ceiling......it is just gorgeous!

I visited this church some months ago with my son. It is very beautiful and very different. It appears to be "sideways on" compared to most churches where the chancel and the apse are in line with one another. Well worth a visit

St. Malachy's is a very interesting Roman Catholic Church. From the outside it almost looks like a fortress. Inside it is totally different. It was bright and there were some interesting artworks as well as its most noted fan ceiling. There is a lot of...More

From the street, St Malachy's looks more like a fortress than a church, with its austere exterior of Belfast red bricks. Once inside, it is another world. Firstly, it is highly decorative and truly beautiful, with the highlight (quite literally) being the stunning fan-vaulted ceiling....More
