This church wasn't far from where I was staying. I came by just as it was closing for the night but walked around the cemetery and looked at some of the old headstones. It was really interesting and in the morning I came to see the church inside. This is a beautiful and interesting historical church. A lot of history... More

Worth a look, if only for the cool cemetery which surrounds the church itself. You can see where they used to sharpen their swords back in the day against the stone door of the church. Also visited on the Ghost Tour.

This church was built by the Normans about 1190 AD replacing an earlier church of the 6th century. Inside is the baptismal font of that earlier church!

We unfortunately only saw the outside during the Ghost Tour but the history the guide imparted was exceptional. What a very beautiful church it is.

We had no idea of the rich history of the Kinsale area and the role that the church played as well as it's tie to Oliver Cromwell. Very interesting

We loved touring the cemetery and attending church on a beautiful Sunday morning. People were so kind, and the history seemed to speak to us as we sat there.

This Norman church was built in 1190 and probably built on the site of an earlier church by the same name from the 6th century. It is located in the heart of historic Kinsale Harbour Town and an easy walk from the visitor center The graveyard is interesting as always.

St Multose Church has been in use since medieval times with a presence since the 11th Century and possibly earlier. The cemetery enclosed within the Church walls holds the remains of many including some of the souls recovered from the infamous "Lusitania Outrage" - where the Lusitania was sunk in the peaceful waters some 10 mile off the coast of...

St. Multose Church was the scene of a wedding the day we walked up to the gateway. A vintage Rolls Royce spirited the couple and their small wedding party away. We waited a few minutes, walked through the fascinating cemetery outside the building, and then entered the old doorway. Total quiet. Not a soul. Serene is hardly the word to... More
