In the shadow of Saints, follow in the footsteps and hear stories of hermits and knights at St. Canice’s Cathedral, Ireland’s best-preserved medieval Cathedral, appearing to the visitor today very much as it did to our Norman & Gaelic ancestors 800 years ago. Touch what they touched. Walk where they walked. See the Round Tower which is a thousand years old and, on your visit, don’t miss The Medieval Effigy tombs, The Great East Window and The Kytler Grave Slab. #stcanicescathedral
