St. Peter and Paul's Church
Ranked #14 of 159 things to do in Cork
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 6, 2014

From the outside this sandstone church doesn't really invite you to come in. But on entering you are visiting one of the most beautiful churches in Cork. Old style, peaceful, full of wooden carvings and stained glass windows, this is a church that oozes peace, serenity and prayer and incense. Masses take place daily.

With all the hustle and bustle of Cork's big department stores this place is an antidote.Drop in light a candle and be thankful for your place in the world.

this church is nestled away on a side street off Patrick Street. The sense of calm and serenity can't be described fully. The age and timelessness is palpable

Wonderful carvings of angels, the confessionals are also exquisitely carved, as is the pulpit. Calm atmosphere in a highly vaulted ceiling and wide aisle. Beautiful church

This church actually came as quite a surprise, It's in the middle of Cork and while it does look nice from the outside, I did not expect such an awesome interior.

The theme of this church seems to be 'angels' as you can find them everywhere. Some bigger angel statues 'guard' the middle part and they are very well made. This Church definitely is worth a visit!
