Visit Limerick’s oldest building for free!

  • Limerick 11 St. Mary's Cathedral

Discover what lies behind the imposing Romanesque doorway of Limerick's oldest building St. Mary’s Cathedral with free admission between 11am and 12noon throughout the summer!

Founded in 1168 AD, St. Mary’s Cathedral stands majestically over the City of Limerick on the banks of the River Shannon in the historic Medieval Quarter. A place of legend, beauty, history and faith, the cathedral is one of the most important medieval buildings to survive intact in Ireland, which is still performing its original function.

The cathedral is believed to have been built on the site of a Viking thingmote (meeting place), and later the palace of the O’Brien Kings of Thomond. It is an extraordinary building that has been ever-present during invasions, sieges, battles, famines and times of peace. It is also a treasure of Irish religious art just waiting to be explored!
