About
St Peter’s Cork is situated in the heart of the Medieval city and is Cork’s oldest church with parts of the building dating back to 12th century. Though no longer a religious venue, the building is still open to the public and is a wonderful place to visit, an oasis of culture and heritage in the centre of the city. The venue can also be hired for corporate events, private receptions and even wedding ceremonies! St Peter’s offers a fantastic introduction to Cork culture with a central exhibition, A City by the Sea, telling the story of Cork from early settlers to modern day. Our friendly staff will be happy to show you around the venue and offer further information on the latest exhibitions and events in St Peter’s and around the city.

Cork 1920 Exhibtion is a must see
Feb 2020
The new exhibtion at St. Peter's is all about Cork 1920 and the burning of the city. I really enjoyed exploring the stories and it is well worth a visit during the year.

A little jewel in the medieval part of Cork city
Aug 2019
Stopped in here during a stroll around Cork with partner and two children on Thur 22 Aug. What a find, we had coffee, green tea and a pear and almond pastry. The young woman who was attending to the coffee bar was very attentive and friendly, such a welcoming smile and personable attitude. You just dont get this genuine customer service anywhere these days she clearly enjoys looking after her guests.
There was a poster display of Irish history which was really well done and I wish I could have spent more time enjoying it.
Well done St Peter's Cork.

AMAZING!
Sep 2018 • Family
I love this gallery cafe place! I jave a toddler and there are not many places here in cork where you could enjoy cup of GOOD coffee and let your kid wander around. Well ,if you are mum and still likes to socialize then this is the place for you. Every Saturday morning there is a mat and toys for little ones,and on any other day there is a "kid corner" which contains sheet and crayons.not much but the place itself is so big that kids can run around AND you can still sit and have your coffee because there is only one entrance so no possibility for them to run away..obviously if you are kinda looking at them once in a while ;) oh ! And there is nice tiny little garden with tables outside with with rocks around so small ones can play with them.AND the staff is AMAZING!!! No complaints about noisy toddlers or anything.very VERY happy to have this place in city center and I wish there would be more of them ! Definitely 10/10 for me ! Go on try it : you wont be disappointed

Nice use for this old church
Jul 2018 • Couples
There was an exhibition in progress when we visited. It was interesting enough an out cork. The building itself was a church which closed in 1949 and was renovated in the late 1990s. Admission is free and the staff are courteous. Building is fully accessible also

Visitor centre provides history of Cork
Feb 2018 • Solo
This little visitor centre is free and it is located in one of the city's oldest buildings and on the city's oldest and most historic road.

The centre provides lots of information, especially on walking tours, and is a useful place to visit. I found the information boards telling me about the history of Cork to be very helpful and informative. they gave me a much better understanding of Corks development and its relationship with the sea.

there is a cafe and toilets here too. Definitely put it on your walking tour and make it a stop.

A Nust Visit
Feb 2018 • Couples
If you are in Cork City you should take time to visit this attraction. In the heart of the city it is easy to find. At present there is an exhibition on the history of Cork City which will be of interest to visitors and locals alike. Starting with Cork’s origin in BC to the present it outlines the important historic events that shaped the city and its people. Illustrated with pictures, drawings and maps where possible it gives a fascinating insight to the history of Cork City. There is a restaurant there also where can relax with something to eat and drink. Definitely a place to visit if you wish to get an insight into the city in one place and entrance is free.
