Belfast & Northern Ireland

St. Peter's Roman Catholic Cathedral

  St. Peter's Square, off Falls Rd      (+44) (0)28 9032 7573     more than a year ago
This neo-Gothic twin-spired Cathedral off Falls Road was built in 1866 for the city's increasing Catholic population. The building was designed in 1860 by Father Jeremiah McAuley, a trained Belfast architect prior to entering Orders, and completed in 1866. Its magnificent twin spires were added in 1886 and dominate West Belfast's skyline. The tower holds a carillon of 11 bells and, following major restoration, the cathedral now boasts fine examples of high Victorian Gothic decoration.





Sun Mass 09:00, 11:00 and 19:00.

Beautiful cathedral, well worth a visit. The choir is absolutely sublime and really added to the experience. We attended the 11 am service which I believe is the only service they sing at so its worth going then for a real treat.

Editor - NII would like to contact St. Peter's, my mother was baptism 1908. She sent for a copy after she met my father when they planned to marry here in the USA. I would like to know if I could get marriage information on my grandmother and grandfather, they lived on the Falls. If you can give me any information it will be greatly appreciated. I hope I am not violating any rules. My email is Bamber2116@ Thanking you for your kind attention. Catherine Hasson-Larson

Helen - the cathedral is most definitely open for business. Check website for latest events, Mass times and how you can tour the building.

I heard that St. Peter's is now closed. No priest, nothing. Is it open at all?
