We visit this church by mistake, because we thought it was the cathedral. Anyway, we went inside and took a look and it is an average church, nothing exciting. It is not ugly, and maybe it worth the time to visit.

Right outside downtown Kilkenny it's a beautiful cathedral with gorgeous stained glass on the inside. Although it's not very large, it's always open for people to go in and have a look. Definitely worth stopping in to if you're in town.
