If you are a Rory Gallagher fan - and I have been since about 1966 - this is a must visit - a pilgrimage in fact. It didn't disappoint.

Had to come along to say hello to one of my guitar heroes. Sad place but joy to see and pay homage. Don't understand how anyone can't give this grave 5 stars!

Having been to Cork on the weekend before Rory's passing, the visit to the grave side seemed a little somber. Taking a Cork taxis straight to the cemetery was the best option. The graveside is easily noticeable and you feel a strong sense of 'belonging'....More

I believe that who is rock fun, and live or to doing a trip in Cork, everybody need to go in this cemitery. I went to walking, around 1.30 hours from Cork City, but with friends the jorney becomes pleasant.

I didn't notice the opening hours...but if you put St. Oliver's Cemetery Cork into a search engine - it'll tell you. Most cemeteries are open in Ireland on a Sunday so family can visit loved ones.
