There are so many beautiful churches in Ireland and this one rates right up with the best of them. The ONLY church in Ireland not named after a saint. If you are doing the Ring of Kerry, don't miss this stop in Cahersiven.

Fascinating visit to the only catholic church commemorating a lay man - the liberator ... an Irish gandhi figure

This church is the memorial church for one of Ireland's greatest sons, which makes it worth a stop when you are around. The church is huge (for a town of that size), impressive on the outside and surprisingly decent on the inside. I would say, nothing special.

Beautiful church in the center of the town. Not your typical design with the tall steeple like you see in other Catholic churches in Ireland. Nice stain glass and altar.

I live on the Ring but rarely in Cahersiveen so did not know the Church well. A busy active place yesterday, with the rosary being prayed and the visit from what looked like hundreds of tiny schoolchildren walking in pairs holding hands; preparing for the end of term/year Mass the teachers told me, A delightful sight.. There is now a... More

We visited this church as it is in the very heart of Caheriveen and were not disappointed. The quiet atmosphere inside is in direct contrast to the busy street outside. When visiting, there was a prayer group saying the Rosary and this added to the atmosphere. Mgr Hugh O'Flaherty's final resting place is in the graveyard. A great place to... More

A nice medium size Gothic Church. It's beautiful gothic interior is nicely decorated with some tile murals and 14 scenes of Christ from his judgment, crucifixation, and resurrection. The gothic arches are amazing architecture.

Visited Christmas of 2013 and the church was decorated with the simplistic things but was still so moving spiritually. Well worth a visit.

This beautiful church is very unusual in being named for a law person, one very important in the history of Ireland. The church reflects his importance in an elegant and moving way. Well worth visiting and reflecting on liberty.
