St Malachy’s is in the centre of Belfast and while a must see for visitors with an interest in historic church buildings nevertheless its internal architecture and layout will be of much wider interest.The church’s interior has been beautifully restored.

Attended services here on a recent visit to Belfast. Overall, very nice church with beautiful, if somewhat unusual, Victorian Gothic exterior that one does not really associate with churches generally. I learnt as well that this church in the middle of the 19th century was...More
