The building is a beautiful work of art. It's probably the best Cork City Centre has to offer although St Finbars Cathedral gets the limelight. Its a very nice place to have peaceful calm and take a moment away from the hustle and bustle.

This is a very grand church, with a far lovelier interior than St Fin Barre's Cathedral, stunning stained glass windows and hugely ornate ceiling. Took us a few minutes more than anticipated to find the Church given it’s location off Paul Street, but it was...More

This church is beyond belief. I had a lovely chat with the volunteers working that day and they were very knowledgeable about the history of the church. The detail craftsmanship is the testament of what spiritually motivated men can create.

St Peter and St Paul's Church is a very pretty church in a very nice town. I enjoyed taking a short rest at the church between the market and museums. The church is not spectacular as some cathedral's around Europe but it is still very...More

I went here kind of to fill up some time at the end of a few days in Cork. I didn't set aside a bunch of time, thought I would just drop in go 'ooh aah' and leave. Didn't happen. The church is so beautiful...More

This is a lovely Church to visit, excellent location just off Patrick Street. It has a lovely Shrine to St. Pio. With total respect, I would suggest to the prayer group to cease as their loud praying is off putting to those who want to...More

AW Pugin churches are usually particular favourites of mine, and this one's a gem. Other than the change made as a result of Vatican II (the congregation facing altar), this is pretty much unreconstructed, and very Victorian Gothic. Lots of dark wood, and carvings. A...More

I was especially interested in this Church as my ancestors were married here. Paddy from the church office was able to obtain a copy of the original marriage certificate which I was so grateful for.
