“Worth More Than One Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

I've been to St. Dunstan's twice and expect to return on my next trip to PEI. I love the angels guarding the huge, dark doors of the Basilica like bastions of faith. Our Lady of Hope looked like a new addition and is lovely! I especially love the detailed, ornate interior, filled with bas relief and statues in nooks and crannies. On my last visit, I couldn't explore as much as I would've liked because of repair work and because the choir was practicing. The music added the perfect note to my explorations. My rating will go up, once repairs are completed enough to see more of the interior.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

This is a beautifully constructed and maintained church. The stained glass, stonework, wood working, acoustics - it's just amazing. The spires are one of the taller items within the city of Charlottetown, and it is situated on a very picturesque street with a view to the waterfront and Province House a half block away.

“I go everytime I can get there”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

I love this church. Not just for its architecture but for it feel. Unfoirtunately this time they were having a special mass so the sanctuary was closed for a short time. Beautiful, and part of the catholic culture in Charlottetown.
