Costello Chapel

This little gem of historical value is situated on Main Street, Carrick on Shannon. The Costello Chapel is the smallest chapel in Europe and the 2nd smallest chapel in the world and, like the Taj Mahal, is a testament to a man’s love for his wife.

The chapel is sixteen feet long, 12 feet wide and 30 feet high. Each side of the aisle holds a coffin lined with lead and covered with slabs of thick reinforced glass.

The remains of Josephine (1889) and of Edwards who died in 1891 are both interred in this beautiful memorial.
