Highly recommended to stop off here when in cobh. it's worth the walk up the steep hill to see the altar and marvel at the sculptures. Views are also a bonus on a clear day.

Although built on the site of an older church or cathedral, this Cathedral was built in the 1800's and the steeple was only finished in the 1920's. The church is a beautiful example of gothic architecture with statues and relief stone carvings everywhere you cast...More

Such a grand building was something I was not expecting to see in Cobh, which is like a village. We visited in January and it was a frigid day - breath frosting cold. Inside the Cathedral it felt a bit colder still. Strangely, that to...More

Amazing Cathedral on a hill with spectacular views. Our visit to Cobh was very enjoyable, some lovely little coffee shops. Lovely viewing area beside the Titanic Experience.

An absolutely stunning Cathedral situated looking directly out over Cork Harbour. Architecturally beautiful both inside and outside. The rose window viewed from inside is amazing. Guides are available during Summer months to tell the history of this must see building.

Amazing cathedral from the outside and beautiful on the inside. We were there during a mass so couldn’t get in to see it all but what we could see was great.

Perched as it is on a hill overlooking Cork Harbour, this Cathedral has a magnificent view of ships departing for America. Cobh is the last port of departure for the ill-fated Titanic. This Cathedral has magnificent stained glass windows as well as internal statuary and...More
