Fodor's Review

Limerick is a predominantly Catholic city, but the Protestant St. Mary's Cathedral is the city's oldest religious building. Once a 12th-century palace—pilasters and a rounded Romanesque entrance were part of the original structure—it dates mostly from the 15th century. The black-oak carvings on misericords in the choir stalls are from this period.
