St. Mary's Cathedral

    This Church of Ireland/Anglican Structure is Limerick's oldest religious building. The founding date is usually given as 1168, when the site for that Cathedral was donated by Donal Mor O'Brien, king of Munster, who had a palace located there. Most of the church is much newer than this, but the 12th-century entrance still remains. The cathedral has been expanded and restored many times over the years. Other original structures include 15th-century misericords and reredos. From September to July, the resident choir performs a choral evensong on the third Sunday of every month at 7 pm. If you are in Limerick during these times, it would be well worth your while to go. The Cathedral is open to the public daily from 9 am to 5 pm.

Special exhibitions frequently showcase Limerick- or Ireland-born artists. All this is housed in an impressive 18th-century building. A restaurant on the premises serves light fare or full meals. Admission is €6.50 for adults, €5.50 for students and seniors, €3.20 for children and €15.00 for families. See website for hours.   Free Entry to everyone on Sundays.
