  • While driving through Ireland we came across this lovely old cathedra opened in 1874. It is well maintained and cared for and beautifully decorated inside. It felt a very peaceful place. 
  • The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is beautiful. I wish I had been able to attend Mass, but timing was not right. This is a must see if you are visiting Sligo 
  • The Cathedral is located in Temple Street, is very impressive and beautiful, but inside it's not particularly interesting.

  • Beautiful cathedral for my beautiful Nannas funeral
  • 3€ for the parking! Cathedral is a bit too kitschy.
