We couldn't get into the church so just walked around it. The most remarkable thing about it is it's age and it's location right in the middle of Kinsale.

We tried to visit this church but it was locked up. Sad because we felt like it would be really nice inside.

Fabulous old church a spectacular cemetery. I took some of my favorite pictures of my trip here. There are a few of the victims of the Lusitania sinking here. There is a stone in a doorway with wear patterns from sharpening swords.

A tranquil place of worship with more than 800 years history of worship. Explore the Anglo Irish heritage in both the church and the graveyard. Attend the vibrant Sunday services as well as the frequent concerts held in St Multose for its perfect acoustics

We were disappointed that the church itself was locked when we were there midmorning. However we walked around the grounds and that was interesting. We had really gone to see the inside of the church, so that part was disappointing. Not sure when it would be open, so if making the walk to the church, be aware that it is... More

Great site to visit to view old grave stones even without touring the church. Couple graves of victims of the Lusitania sinking.

Very photogenic structure, with a graveyard that adds to the eerie charm. Worth walking up to experience the vibe.

For a few contemplative moments, a nice church to visit. Beautiful stained-glass at the altar. Not much time needed here. We were lucky to find it open. Enjoy your Peace here!

An old church, disgraced by the English. Cromwell used it as a horse stable. The church , stolen from the Catholics, is now a "Church of Ireland" property. Of course this "Church of Ireland" is NOT a Catholic Church. Nothing to see here, folks, the church is not often open.
