St. Mary's Cathedral, Limerick
(3.9/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
The city's oldest building still in daily use, St. Mary's Cathedral boasts beautiful architecture and a rich history. This ancient church was founded in 1163 and today is part of the protestant Church of Ireland. Admire the interior and discover its many historical treasures, including the five chandeliers that hang from the ceiling. The largest three were made in Dublin and presented to the cathedral in 1759. On the church grounds look for the United Nations Memorial Plaque, which lists the names of Irish men who died while serving in the United Nations.

  • Didn't go inside, but the outside and the cemetery were very interesting. Would like to have had more time 
  • Wonderful structure - and great history. There inside has much info about the history and bin great detail. Brochures in many languages. Beautiful windows and art works. Well worth a visit. 
  • The Cathedral is full of details, such as the window where the lepers attending mass, choir stalls, altar (one of the largest in Ireland) or a few cannonballs fired against the Cathedral in the 17TH century
