“History!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

It's just a graveyard around the old church and the "new" Catholic church, but it was amazing to see several high celtic crosses, one even in the sheep field next to the church.

“Kilfenora Cathedral”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

The crosses were very nice and protected from the elements by a glass roof; however, I felt uncomfortable walking on peoples graves to get to the crosses.

“preety”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

It was a nice place, the church and crosses were very nice, but i would have liked to spend a little more time seeing the whole town! The only thing i didnt like was that to get to see the crosses we had to walk over people's graves/tombstones - i just find that very disrespectful! Im not sure if there is another way to go in (i think there is?) but the small arch on the side of the road is not a good place to go in from! it annoyed me a little and i felt very strange walking over there - anyway thought back to the crosses and church it was lovely!

“Full of history and atmosphere.”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Lovely church with the various crosses presented under a glass roof. Free to enter with a €2 donation requested. One lady there seemed to be having a moment it is so atmospheric. Well worth a visit.
