Went by today to see the beautiful stained glass and 2 flags (look up) that were at the Battle of Waterloo. Acoustics here are wonderful, there is a concert (for charity) there tonight (7/28). They have quite a few there. Go to the cemetery out back, some folks who died on the Lusitania, which went down 10 miles out to... More

There aren't too many places that can claim their roots as far back as this Norman church. To think that it was built over 925 years ago and has continuously been a place of worship during that time is mind boggling. Our only disappointment was not being able to go in.

A must see!! The grounds has a very old cemetery surrounding the church. Highly recommend not missing this church if you are in Kinsale or close to Kinsale.

Special atmosphere in this old monument of the war. The silence makes you pensive . Please give special attention to the beautiful windows commemorating the great war.

My husband and I were enjoying the streets of Kinsale during a bus tour stop when we happened upon St. Multose. The building itself was built circa 1190 and it is still a working church. The only downside was that there were no tours offered and no one to ask questions of as we were most interested in the history... More

I went during a weekday, when the church was not in use. Self-guided. This is a church still in regular use despite its history. During that time of day there was no one else around giving the opportunity for reflection. Great stop on a walking tour of the town, and free.

We came in when the organist was practicing. Enjoyed it greatly. Would be nice if they had organ concerts. The church is a beautiful old one with an interesting grave yard.

Glorious church built in 1190.....stained glass features, especially in the chapel, are beautiful! St. Multose is the Patron Saint of Kinsale and this church is thought to actually be built on the site of a 6th Century building which was also called St. Multose. The graveyard and the special dedications throughout the church are interesting steps back into history. Its... More

The graveyard that encircles the church is interesting to walk through. Inside the church it is peaceful of course, but you will want to be active enough to look around. There are very interesting carved stones along the far wall. Look for a pamphlet that will explain the history. Fascinating.

Beautiful ancient church with a long and interesting history. We were fortunate to find the church open so exploring the chapel was a nice treat. The beautiful stained glass windows alone are worth the visit. History pours from every stone. A plaque in the anteroom even lists all the vicars and rectors going back to 1377 (see photo). A highly... More
