    We went to visit here, following a map drawn by a masseuse Niamh, in the Escape Spa and on her recommendaion. We loved every minute of it. Once the steps were climbed(and a little out of breath, due to our vintage), we were met with the most amazing views of the city. Lovely grounds and the bells were amazing. Would highly recommend,

    I was able to obtain, baptism and marriage certificates for a few of my O'Brien ancestors. And the baptismal font was most likely used by them. Beautiful renovations inside.

    Interior of the church is something to behold. The architecture is very well done and the space within is breath-taking

    This is a truly beautiful old church and the oldest active catholic church within Cork City. It is an oasis of calm throughout the day, where one can escape the madness of the modern world to sit and contemplate / mediate / pray. It is cool, quiet and dim, the perfect atmosphere for contemplation.
    It unsurprisingly as an active catholic church, has a number of religious icons including the spectacular under alter sculpture of the "The Dead Christ" being one of three by the Cork John Hogan. All may be admired at your leisure no matter your religious persuasion, culture, creed or orientation. Two side alters provide adoration for Mary Aikenhead and the Venerable Nano Nagel, two very important historical women local to this congregation.
    The congregation goes out of its way to welcome all visitors and hosts an after mass tea on the first weekend of every month (after 6 mass on Saturday evening and 11 mass on Sunday morning) where all are invited from the alter to partake , no matter your religious beliefs or whether a regular attendee or a visitor.
    Enjoy the peace, sanctuary and hope that's difficult to find in this busy world anymore

    I visited St Augustine's Church this morning and stayed for the 11am service as I had time on my hands. It is indeed a long while since I attended mass. However, I really enjoyed the experience. The Service was delivered by a lovely priest who told the story of St Monica and her son St. Augustine. I never had heard this story before this.
    The Service was peaceful and welcoming and when I am in Cork again, I will certainly attend another service there. I believe, tomorrow is the feast day of St. Augustine. I wish I was in Cork to attend.

    Nice church to visit for a quiet reflection. Beautiful setting for a family wedding as it can be appropriately decorated for the occasion.
