I have performed regularly in this church, and the acoustic is absolutely superb. A real joy to sing into. Friendly and obliging parish priest. I'd highly recommend to any performers looking for a venue.

My great grandparents were married here In 1879. It was thrilling to be in the same church. It was beautiful what with the confessionals had carvings. It was surprising to find a church nestled in such a busy , commercial area.

This church was very beautiful. I was roaming through Cork taking pictures and found this church. I happened to arrive here about 15 minutes before mass so I stayed and was very happy that I did.
