St. Joseph's Church Limerick is gorgeous - from the detail of the fleur-de-lis tiling on the floor center aisle, stunning painted stations of the cross, to the lovely stained glass windows. The beautiful golden yellow sanctuary was a cheerful welcome, on my rainy day visit....More

There were many different sections of the church to take pictures of. The art work was amazing you just kept on taking pictures so that you could capture it all.

A beautifully kept and welcoming space. A place of peace on a busy thoroughfare. St Joseph's is a focal point for community and city. The Sunday evening Mass at particular times of the year is lovely for families.

What a lovely church on the Main O'Connell Street of Limerick city. The large main wooden door opens directly onto the footpath so it is easy to pass it by without realising there's a church nestled into the terraced buildings. Busy lunchtime mass.
