Well worth a visit, very beautiful and a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the town. Nice place to get mass cards in the Friary. Close to the train station so very central.

A visit on the Feast of the Assumption renews ones faith in the Church in these difficult times. The priest was welcoming and made us all feel special. I will return.

The Franciscan friars at Fair Hill have long ministered to the townspeople. The Franciscan tradition is strong in the town, with Friars being associated with the area from the 300's. The Friary itself is a magnificent structure which holds most of its original wood structures...More

It's a church, friary, beautiful gardens and even a bookstore. The church is open fir visits, prayer or lighting candles. Beautiful architecture inside and out.

So this small town can support so many churches and they are still practicing which means when we came they had an afternoon service even though it was mid-week. Architecture was lovely. Nice to come

This is a beautiful friary in the centre of Killarney. We took the opportunity to sit and reflect. The mosaic at the alter looks like a painted wall from a distance but is absolutely beautiful mosaic work. A highlight of our visit to Killarney.
