Wasn’t worth taking the train there and back to spend 10 minutes in the church. They have not maintained the exterior of the church. So many churches that are much more beautiful.

Imposing grey building. The glass panels a bit modern for me but still bright and illuminating. Not as intricate as cathedrals in Rome or Paris.

There's something about this Church which is near impossible to put into words. There's the peaceful atmosphere like a quiet oasis in the heart of the city where you can just sit and totally relax. The Church itself is the Parish Church of Cork inner...More

Nice to get away from the busy streets. Some beautiful wooden carvings in the church. Nice and central with good cafes nearby.

Just 20 metres off Patrick's St., this is probably the most 'soulful' church in Cork ! You get an instant sense of calmness when you enter and while it may not have the magnificent stained glass of others who bear the same name, it is...More

This is a gorgeous church in a totally unassuming location near Paul Street. Totally worth stopping in for a few minutes of peace and quiet in the middle of the city.

Must see ! Father invited us in when he saw us standing at the doors after it had closed. Gave us an amazing tour and some background on the church’s history. Breathtaking.
