Pugin, George Ashlin, and Thomas Coleman began construction in 1867, and it was not completed until 1915. Officially named St. Coleman's Cathedral, this religious site is known for spectacular neo-Gothic architecture. Tour the cathedral and admire its exterior and interior beauty.

  • Well worth going in! Warning though, it's high up and if you struggle walking, take a taxi up there. The cathedral itself is wonderful and well worth the climb. Quiet and treated as a cathedral should be, there are guides who can take you round and show you all the parts, its history and links with Titanic and the Lusitania. There is a tiny cathedral shop at the exit; the bigger shop is further round the back, outside the church itself opposite the car park there.
  • A very beautiful Gothic style Christian church. The largest bishop church in southwestern Ireland. Plain and solemn, gorgeous and elegant. Mosaic mosaic floor, beautiful religious relief. A long room dome and a suspended window with colored glass. Sitting inside will feel unlimited peace and happiness. Every afternoon, the colorful sunshine from the window will be beautiful!
