Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

    While not ancient, Saint Fin Barre's cathedral in Cork still manages to be awe-inspiring. Visiting is made simple and informative by the leaflet you get at the entrance, and the staff issuing tickets is also very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. The architect charged with the construction must have been quite a character, and it is probably not by chance that he is mentioned everywhere as you visit the church.
    A feature of churches - primarily in the British Isles - which I find very endearing is the connection between the religious building and the memory of the young people from the congregation that were killed in a war. This cathedral is no exception, and the names of the fallen are preserved neatly in a thick book that can be admired close to one of the transept pillars.

    Found the tower while searching for a property in the area...take the R588 road from Enniskeane to Cappeen and the turn for the church and tower are approx 5KM along on the left as you drop down into a dip in the road. A great legacy of the history of Ireland.
    Tower is fairly impressive sitting on bedrock and the fact that it has survived for so long is pretty amazing too. Place is pretty eerie with the graveyard next door and some very poignant gravestones, victims of the famine etc.
    Easy to park outside and a short walk through the graveyard...

    We were the only visitors during the time we spent in the gardens. Magnificently refurbished house (a wedding venue) with beautifully restore gate lodges and a boat house, all to rent. A working farm as well as a beautiful mansion. Molana abbey, the reputed burial place of one of the first Norman invaders, Raymond Le Gros, is in the grounds. A very romantic location.
