Great free car parking, excellent book shop, access to toilets and the shrine and the story is amazing. We attended the church for a wedding and loved the history and the pilgrimage to the shrine. We worth a visit if you are in the area.

The church where they saw the vision of Mary long ago has been redone plus they built a huge church on the site to accommodate the pilgrims who come here yearly for healing & blessings. They also have a small store to purchase mementos. There was a mass going on... 更多
Knock Shrine is a lot larger than we expected and we did not allow nearly enough time to explore and enjoy the beautiful grounds, the gardens, the candelabrum and the stations of the cross. Everything that we did visit was beautiful, clean and amazing.

The town itself is beautiful. The visit to the wall of the church where the apparition took place was the highlight for us. Very moving, very spiritual experience. It is well worth the time to visit the old cemetery.
