St. Mary's Cathedral, Killarney

4.7
Admire the combination of architectural influences at St. Mary's Cathedral. This Gothic cathedral is partly designed after Ireland's medieval churches. The brown-and-gray stonework and three stained-glass lancet windows represent traditional Irish features added by local architects. Visit the church between services to inspect the fine work inside. Consider observing a service to fully appreciate the somber beauty of the chapel.

  • From the outside already it imposes. You enter you're seized by its size and height of the vaults. The stained glass windows are gorgeous. She is striking because of its size, it can accommodate a thousand faithful apparently... Dark and austere, she invites you to prayer.
