We attended 10:30 Sunday Mass. The celebrant/preacher (Fr Ailbe) was engaging and direct, with a good sense of humour. The liturgy was neither stiff nor pompous. You felt it was meant for you! There was good musical accompaniment from a group of young women. The...More

A lovely place to look around and to see the rooms etc. of what once was a very formidable structure. We went up to the top and took pictures of the city. I thought it was the best thing we did while there .

Beautiful cathedral with the tallest spire in the country! There was a funeral service the day we were there so we didn't go in to visit the inside.

The "Sing Limerick" event continues with an evening of choral singing by 6 groups from Ireland and one from Pensacola Florida, The Pensacola Childrens Choir. Amazing setting and amazing performances.

A lovely 19th century cathedral, with some beautiful stained glass and a beautiful Pipe Organ, which is used on Sundays for Mass, with the choir at 12 noon. A variety of church music is sung, from contemporary to classical and plainchant.
