“Special Project Took Away from the Cathedral”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Couldn't see much of the "normal" cathedral, since there was construction going on inside for a show of some sort. Looked like they were building an ark for a show or play that was coming up. Would have been beautiful w/o the contractors and such.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

It would be a shame to miss this and at only €3 each to get in you cant go wrong! It was built around 1168 and is still in daily use. Check out the misericords (or mercy seats) - they are the only complete set left in Ireland and are well worth seeing.

“Gorgeous Cathedral, worth seeing”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Such a beautiful cathedral, and cemetery. A cute little orange kitty greeted us when we arrived too! The large wooden front door is stunning, make sure to get a picture.
