St. Malachy's Church Vacation Packages (Flight + Hotel)
Vacation Travel Guide

Peruse the intriguing relics dotted around the interior of this historic church and appreciate the calm oasis in Belfast’s city center.

St. Malachy’s Church is a 19th-century spiritual structure of Tudor Revival design. Gaze up at the intricate fan vaulted ceiling that resembles part of London’s Westminster Abbey. Spend a quiet moment of reflection in this tranquil space, away from the noise of the city. Enjoy a pint of Guinness at one of the pubs in the area that play live music.

Admire the blue mosaic floor surrounding the altar. Look at the marble features, such as the high altar, pulpit and altar rails. These were originally made from Irish oak but were replaced during a renovation in the 1920s. At the bottom of the altar, note the pelican that symbolizes sacrifice. Stained-glass windows tell stories from the Bible.

Marvel at the various sculptures that decorate the nave. Appreciate the detailed works of art lining the walls. Floral displays add color to the serene church. Light a candle and say a prayer in this spiritual haven.

The highlight of the church is its mesmerizing fan vaulted ceiling. Sit on a pew and cast your gaze to the white ceiling design that resembles spider webs in its intricacy.

Capture photos of the church at night, when it is illuminated in golden light. Gaze up at its twin towers. Watch a live broadcast of a church service on the official website.

Learn about the intriguing history of the church, which survived multiple German air raids during World War II. On one occasion, a nearby bomb smashed some of the windows.

There is no fee to enter the church. Mass takes place twice per day during the week.

St. Malachy’s Church is in the center of Belfast. It lies a few blocks southeast of Belfast City Hall, the Linen Hall Library and May Street Church. Other nearby attractions are the Victoria Square Shopping Centre and the Belfast Waterfront.
