“St. Brendan's Cathedral”
Reviewed 11 November 2012

The most beautiful church we stopped at!!! Rhona, the woman who cares for the sacristy, gave us the grand tour and even played the massive organ for my husband and me! Would go back in a heartbeat!!! The grounds were as beautiful as the cathedral! A must see!

“Stained Glass”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

The stained glass windows in this Cathedral are of interest. All are by Irish aritsts and each window has a name plate of the artist. The Cathedral was built in the Celtic Revival period and the Bishop at the time wanted to use Irish artists and stone masons.
