I was especially interested in this Church as my ancestors were married here. Paddy from the church office was able to obtain a copy of the original marriage certificate which I was so grateful for.

We stepped into the church to light a few candles for friends and discovered a beautifully kept church. The building was well maintained, the stainglass windows are beautiful as well as the workwork and marble. It was a beautiful surprise and worth the stop.

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

I think you should be welcome in any church whether christian or not. Easter is going to be very full as it is the highest holiday, and I advise arriving an hour or two before to get a seat. To be polite, I would sit to... More
