Steeped in History

Well worth the stop. Seeing the historical layout of the monastery and reading the grave markers. Very solemn and quiet place.

This is a real old world church that you can sense is steeped in history. I popped in after lunch across the way in the fantastic Pantry, and had a peaceful walk among the gravestones on a sunny day in March. I met a few other visitors there and everyone agreed it was a lovely little retreat in the middle... More

This church is almost 900 years young. You can only visit by prior appointment or during church services, as it is not always open on a daily basis - but the grounds/graveyard are well worth a stroll around. St Multose is right in the heart of Kinsale across the street from the Garda (Police) station and within a three minute... More

While walking around Kinsale, we happened upon St. Multose Church. We knew nothing of its history prior to the visit. We could not get into the church but the cemetery and grounds are very much worth exploring. We are also not aware of the history of the swords and soldiers.

This 12th Century church has seen many changes since St Multose arrived in Kinsale in the 6th Century to bring Christianity to the locals. The Norman architecture is still quite prominent and the significants of the place is expressed within the church which was the site where King Charles II was proclaimed King of England following the execution of Charles...

The St. Multose Church has been established for many years. Take a walk around the ground and see headstones over 200 years old! There are even graves for passengers of the Lucitania that was sunk off the coast of Kinsale.

We couldn't get in, but the cemetery was very interesting. Old old old The most fascinating thing about this church was the stone door...and the marks in the stone on either side of the front door...deep grooves where the Norsemen (?) sharpened their swords before entering the church. Very much worth a stop...

I was attracted by the cemetery, it is something out of the normal. In some cases you can not read anything on the stones but the wole place is like coming out from a film

Be sure to look for the marks on the door where soldiers sharpened their swords, upper right side. Picturesque cemetery.

One of the oldest churches in the world still in use. We couldn't get inside, but found the cemetary interesting to see the gravestones from so old to recent.
