If you are in Killarney, don't miss the chance to see the St. Mary's Cathedral. It is breath-taking. I was able to pray at their Eucharistic Adoration while we were there. Truly a must see.

St Mary’s is the Cathedral Church for the Diocese of Kerry. It is beautifully maintained and still acts as the parish church for the town of Killarney. Well worth the visit for a little quiet time.
