We took a tour inside and found it so beautiful. Loved the stained glass windows! There were a few other tourists there as well, but everyone was very respectful and quiet, as some people were in prayer and confession. Would highly reccomend it.

Hi, Greg. What would you like to know about this attraction? Is there a tour of the inside of the church or do you visit the outside only? I could not find anything on the inside of the church. thanks Greg

There is a local historian who gives walking tours around cobh but im not sure if they take you inside the church itself but im sure they would answer any questions you may have.
