Saint Mary's Cathedral was founded in 1168 AD and stands majestically over the city Of Limerick on the banks of the River Shannon.
Saint Mary's Cathedral is one of the most important medieval buildings to survive intact in Ireland which is still performing its original function.
It is an extraordinary building that has been ever-present during invasions, sieges, battles, wars, famines and times of peace.
It is also a treasure of Irish religious art. We encourage you to visit.
