This church is a hidden gem it is right in the centre of town and easily missed only we were stopped at traffic lights so went around the block and into the car park at the side of it and it is like a giant feature. It is so worth a walk around and so tranquil and beautiful

A lovely building outside, when entering it's quite breathtaking. You're greeted by two life-size angel fonts on either side of the aisle. The stunning Great Sanctuary Window depicts Christ the King, St. John the Baptist and the Twelve Apostles.

In the middle of Tralee is a very nice Catholic church. If you are a mass goer there are a couple of morning masses. The altar is modern but there are plenty of history in the church.

This was a must stop for us as it was the parish of my great great grandparents. Though it has undergone rebuilding since they left in 1849 I could feel them there. We were thrilled by the voice of a beautiful young Irish woman during the celebration of Mass.

Attended Mass in this Church. Appears to be a great community spirit here and we were lucky that there was a fabulous singer and plenty of involvement with lay members.
