“Pretty little church, but don't go out of your way to see it”

St. Peter and Paul's Church

This is not a "Destination Church" like some more famous churches and cathedrals, you probably aren't going to go to Cork just to see St Peter and Paul's, however, it is just steps of St. Patricks Street, the major shopping street in Cork, where you will almost certainly end up during any visit here, and it is well worth those few steps. There is no entrance fee and it seemed that most of the dozen or so people that walked in and out while I was there were actually there to pray or light a candle, there really weren't too many other tourists, which I actually really appreciate. Nice to see a church not over run by tour groups.

I have visited Ss. Peter and Paul Church in Cork several times on holiday. It is a beautiful parish church with a vibrant community focused. During Christmas they have an elaborate nativity scene. The architect, Pugin, did an amazing job of blending the gothic style of architecture with the warm ambiance of a parish. The parish celebrates both the Ordinary Form and the Extraordinary Form Masses. It is worth a stop while you are meandering through Patrick Street.

A beautiful living Catholic church in Cork City. Designed by Pugin and with wonderful stained glass windows, which allow the light in on the very dark almost black furniture. Interesting plaques on the walls as well commemorating various historic events and deaths

Churches were hidden away in side streets during occupation.
