This Pugin designed cathedral is stunning inside, having exposed stone walls which are coarse, but add a wonderful textural appearance. The height of the roof is extraordinary when viewed from the inside. It is very tranquil.

This amazing church has beautiful stain glass windows and a beautiful alter. We had our wedding mass in this church last year and all of our guests had great things to say about it. This church is well worth a visit.

St Mary's Church is a quiet respite and worth a quick visit. It is simply decorated compared to many cathedrals. It is located just off of High Street in old town Killarney. It is worth a quick pop in.

We spotted this Cathedral as we drove past in the dark. It looked amazing as it was beautifully illuminated. By daylight it also did not disappoint. A stunning building of grey stone, carefully crafted cloisters internally and wonderful stained glass windows. Well worth a visit.

Still a working religious site, St. Mary's Cathedral is in very good condition and is the most easily seen landmark in Killarney.
