Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantadtic church and nice celebration of the priest on Sunday. Inside is little bit dark, but it is not important. Darkness helps to take concentration

One of the oldest Churches in Cork, the Dominican Church is a wonderful example of the architecture of that period in Cork after Catholic Emancipation. its high pillars and majestic entrance give it an elegance and sense of the Sacred. The high ceiling and ornate windows, together with the wonderful sanctuary lends a sense of peace and tranquillity.

This church is more modern than others we visit in Cork and this was the last of a group of three we visit. Nort Cathedral , st. Annes and now st,Mary´s all in a short walk. We liked them all but like we said this was the most modern.

St Mary's Dominican church is a knock out for its beautiful architecture and artistry as a place of worship.The majesty of its exterior and interior is exceptional. It is worth a visit to see what Roman Catholics built in the early 19th century after hundreds of years having their religion suppressed by the English.

This is a functioning Dominican church. Within, you can see the marble pillars that were initially intended to be the organ gallery of St Pauls cathedral in London. There is a lovely shrine to the right of the main altar, Our Lady of Graces.
Well worth a visit
