While visiting the area we went to a 5 PM Mass at St. Malachy's Church. It is a beautiful spot with the most extraordinary interior, very old world and lovely. I would return on our next visit. The priest gave a lovely sermon.

Visited this church because my great grandfather had been baptized here in 1863. Just beautiful and different for our churches in its style. It has been restored.

St Malachy’s is in the centre of Belfast and while a must see for visitors with an interest in historic church buildings nevertheless its internal architecture and layout will be of much wider interest.The church’s interior has been beautifully restored.

I visited this chapel on Friday morning 27 January 2018 to explore this rather unique architectual building. The interior is unique insofar as it is wider than its length. The decor is lovely and you can sit and reflect without interuption.

The Church is in the ecclesiastical style of the Tudor period. It is cruciform in shape. It’s the only church that is wider than its long. The original High Altar, Pulpit and Altar Rails were of Irish Oak but were replaced with marble when the...More
