St Aidan’s Cathedral, Enniscorthy


St Aidan’s Cathedral is a sophisticated cathedral in Enniscorthy, County Wexford.

The Catholic cathedral may be an ideal filming location for scenes that require a sophisticated church. The cathedral is relatively lavishly decorated with many stained-glass windows, an impressive marble altar, a delicate timber ceiling, and other architectural embellishments. The details of the cathedral are finer than most churches and give it an extra energy and character. For example, there are delicate motifs painted on the pillars, carvings of saints in the altarpiece, and an embroidered rug surrounds the altar.

The cathedral is located near the centre of Enniscorthy. The street that it occupies is busy and steep. Shops and restaurants line the street. Vinegar Hill can be seen from the front of the cathedral. The grounds of the building are surprisingly peaceful and secluded, considering the location is in the middle of the town. A graveyard is located at the rear of the location. The cemetery is relatively large for an urban church and may make a useful filming location itself.

Well regarded architect, Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin, designed the church in the 1850s. The exterior is made of dressed local stone.
