This cathedral we believe was the church home of my paternal grandmother whom I never knew (passed before I was born), but whose Orange heritage was legendary in the family. The edifice is impressive and the RC cathedral of the same name is visible across...More

It was so interesting to get the contrast between the two cathedrals; the interiors were quite similar. This one had the lovely restaurant next door as well as the little museum.

Having attended Charles Wood Gala concert this building shows what a versatile venue it is. Beautiful architecture, surroundings and a fabulous and stunning organ which accompanied the choir and singers. Well worth a visit when in the area.

Coincidental visit - but an interesting place for its religious heritage and architecture. Within reach from the city centre,

Unfortunately this potentially beautiful building has been typically bedecked in British military symbolism and flags. To Irish people, and perhaps to anyone who has felt the oppression of the 'Empire' over the centuries, this is incredibly intimidating and frankly saddening.

The Anglican Churches are deliberately less elaborate than their Catholic counterparts, as is this compared to st Patrick's Roman Catholic Cathedral. However, it has far more design elements than most, including a red ceiling, large colorful painting over the altar and limited Gothic touches. The...More
