A beautiful cathedral easily accessible to all visitors. We spent a day in Cobh as part of a longer visit to Cork. The Cathedral enjoys a high aspect looking out over the beautiful town of Cobh.

Beautiful cathedral atop the village of Cobh. Great spires. Beautiful stained glass inside. Parking is available behind the church. Walk down into town took approximately 5 minutes. Beautiful views of the town and Cobh harbor from the cathedral.

The cathedral is beautiful from the outside and much more impressive inside. Dedicated to St. Colman's. Still a quiet place of worship. A must see in Cobh.
