Visited here as part of a tour group. The Cathedral Church of St Colman, usually known as Cobh Cathedral. The cathedral overlooks Cork harbor from a prominent position. Construction began in 1868 and was not completed until over half a century later due to increases...More

While staying in Cork, we did a day trip to Cobh (which is less than 3 miles from Cork). A beautiful town by the sea with quaint shops galore, friendly people. There is plenty to see and do in Cobh. Plenty of free parking around...More

Perched high on the hill overlooking Cobh Harbor where cruise ship docked, it's only about 15 minutes walk. We were blessed with visiting during the 2 days (Sept 28-29th) when it's also a National Irish Flowers celebration. So the cathedral was decked with many gorgeous...More

Free parking opposite. Huge cathedral set high on the hill with wonderful views over the harbour. Nice stained glass inside, a place to pause and think.

A youth choir was rehearsing, with the organist, while we were there -- a great experience. So the cathedral is still a lively place and part of the community. The hilltop location makes for great views and a fine introduction to Cobh.

Seems like the cathedral is looking out for the city of Cobh. It takes a rather steep walk to get there but it can be done in 5 minutes. The church is beautiful and has huge ceilings and has one of the biggest pipe organs...More

The cathedral is the first thing you see as you get into Cobh. It is set against the sea front and is fabulous. The inside is as impressive as the outside. I took lots of photographs. The stained glass windows are lovely too. It was...More

We quite by accident went to St. Colman's on the way down to the Cobh waterfront. Absolutely stunning. We were mesmerized by the architecture. Definitely worth stopping in for a few minutes to appreciate this structure.

While on a cruise we were docked at the city of Cobh. Towering over the city is the St Colman’s Cathedral. It is well worth the uphill walk to visit this cathedral. From there you have a better view of the colorful Cobh buildings. The...More
