“Beautiful on the outside”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Happened upon this church while we were on the Ring of Kerry. Very pretty on the outside. It was getting late so we didn't get to check out the inside though. (FYI, there are public restrooms across the street if you need)

“A haven of peace for all religions and none”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

The building has a peculiar charm and provides a quiet space to get away from the bustle of the busy town. The location is ideal and it is within easy walking distance of the hotel.

“Mass on Sunday”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

How can you possibly rate a church poorly? Lovely to look at and wonderful to worship with the locals and other tourists. The kneelers and benches have built in Catholic guilt, not comfy but who cared.

Reviewed 7 May 2013

The church is lovely from the outside, but signage indicated that visitors were not welcome unless they are attending services.
