Fun climb!
Aug 2021 • Friends
Quirky fun experience in cork city. Climb the bell tower for a fantastic view of cork city. Pre covid you could ring the bells but unfortunately cant now. Would advise that the stairs do get very steep and narrrow the further up you go and also a funny little climb through part once you get to the bells to continue up the tower to the viewing balcony. We really enjoyed as a quirky fun activity but may not be suitable for people with mobility issues.

Super incredible city view
Jun 2021 • Couples
My partner and I came here at the recommendation from a friend. The woman working the desk was really friendly and answered all of our questions. The church itself is a positive and safe space to any and all. And the climb to the top is awesome! Although be warned, it gets super narrow at the top and requires some climbing maneuvers! The view from the top is gorgeous. Also be on the lookout for Bláthín the lizard!

Being from cork and working abroad has brought many friends here to visit. Everytime we take a trip here to show the views and history of the area and the building itself.The staff here Marissa and Mary are the nicest most welcoming people you will meet and are a credit to Cork City. I highly recommend a visit here for the view and to meet great people! 👌

The climb is tight but not too long and its definitely worth it for the great views from the top. Definitely not for the claustrophobic though.

Unique Experience!
May 2019
They allow you to play a song using the bell in the tower then you can go up to see the charming Cork from the top after. There are 8 ropes attached to 8 bells, you pull on the ropes and the bells ring. Simple and fun. Very friendly staff and very reasonably priced. Worth a visit when in Cork!

Small church in cork
Dec 2019
This is a great place to visit the church is a small place but what’s is really fun is to go up the tower and ring the bells. There is a book with few songs you can play. Great for the kids and adults. Tickets cost 5€ but well worth it.
