Beautiful Church

Old church in the city centre, well maintained, and has lots of history. Very calming to sit and pray even for a passing visit.

This church is beautiful inside. A quick stop proved to be worthwhile. It's in a good location if you are in the downtown area on Patrick Street.

It was in the centre of Cork city yet in a little back street which we just fell upon. People were just calling into pray (even the locals) from shopping/sight seeing whatever. Inside the church was magnificent well worth calling into if this is your preference.

This in my opinion, is one of the most peaceful churches or even building I have been it. There is something special, spiritual there which is calming and soothing. Also a great architectural work

The marble walls inside the cathedral have several plates in memory of soldiers killed during the war of the Empire in India and other locations around the world. Make interesting reading.

Right off Patrick Street, we just stumbled upon this church. It is very beautiful and we found it a lot nicer than many of the other churches than many of the other churches that we visited. Just stop in for a few minutes. Free admission.

Very central, a haven, beautifully decorated, a place to reflect away from the hustle and bustle of Cork, How lucky the people of Cork are ! Well worth a visit.
