Fodor's Review

Construction of the Gothic Revival building began in 1858 and took 82 years to finish. Ireland supplied Australia with many of its early immigrants, especially during the Irish potato famine in the mid-19th century. A statue of the Irish patriot Daniel O'Connell stands in the courtyard.
