“Four Faced Liar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Be sure to climb the tower and ring the bells. Don't forget the ear muffs...it can be really loud. Great for kids.=, but the climb to the very top can be scary.

“Fascinating old building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

5 of us went up to play the bells and look out over Cork. It was an experience I will never forget. I don't think any place in the US would let 5 people walk around so high up unsupervised.

“Sounds beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Climbing up the old stairwell was amazing. We enjoyed playing the bells. We played Happy Birthday for our daughter for all of Cork to hear.
Cool

“A long trek, but worth a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

It is a good walk from the city centre and the trek is all up hill. So it would be a good idea to wear a good either sneakers or walking shoes on the day you decide to visit it.

It's really a beautiful building and is easy to find. They have signs around the area so there is no chance you can get lost.

Adults cost €5.00 so it's not too expensive and its fun to do. It's better to go in the morning as you will beat many who will decide to come in the afternoon.

If you visit cork, then it's also work dropping off here while you're in the vicinity.
