  • Magnificent building, stunning high altar with wonderful acoustic for singing. Well worth a visit, just 10 mins from town centre.  more »
  • 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.  more »
  • 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  more »

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