This cathedral is a mixed bag. Its structure is impressive, and it includes many Celtic motifs, which is a nice mixture. The problem is that this cathedral has only been around since 1879.

This is a very commanding building dominating the skyline of Cobh, do park in the Cathedral car park if you arrive by car. Take time to follow the guided tour if available on the time of your visit. The height of the ceiling is very impressive when you consider that it was built more than a century ago. The stain... More

This cathedral is absolutely amazing. It is very striking sitting atop the rest of the town. The architecture and sculptures on the inside are incredible, especially the 12 stations of the cross.

This cathedral is worth the walk to the top of the hill. The view of the harbor is absolutely AMAZING! The cathedral itself is very large and ornate. Worth a look.

Fr. John is wonderful and honored our parents beautifully. The cathedral itself is a masterpiece and could easily spend hours in the detail of everything from the stained glass, mosaic floors and statues.

If you love to take photos, ensure that you go up and climb a wall to take a lovely picture of the cathedral integrated with the colourful neighbourhood.
