As we gradually re-open Knock Shrine, Knock Basilica is open daily for private prayer from 9am to 6pm daily. Please note that due to current restrictions on indoor gatherings there may be limited capacity and queues for entry. We request that pilgrims spend no more than 15 minutes in private prayer. Candles may be lit at the outdoor candleabrum at the Parish Church. It is not possible to light candles in Knock Basilica at present in line with current government guidelines.
