Pretty church

We like churches and this was a beautiful Gothic church. The interior was interesting and the light coming through the windows was gorgeous.

The church is nicely decorated with some stunning stained glass. I did expect it to be a bit bigger though.

A nice city centre church. This is not a bad place to stop outside the hassle of life, if you are that way inclined. "Working " church, so you may interfere in ceremonies at certain times. Respect would be appropriate.

If you want to be connected to a force stronger than yourself call in and say a prayer here in this church I did during my time studying for my Leaving Cert in 68

A Lovely Church which was just off the main Shopping area. A Real gem to visit, and a real surprise when entering from the side street.

The Church is awe inspiring, with really stunning architecture adorned by wonderful stained glass windows . The Church is really peaceful , ideal for prayer and self reflection. It is right in the heart of the city and OLDE CORKE , off St. PATRICK STREET, THE MAIN SHOPPING PULSE OF CORK.

This grand and imposing church is located right in the heart of Cork. Entry is free. You can admire the marble, the stained glass, the elaborate wooden decor, and more. It really is a large and impressive building, although you might not guess it from the outside. Note: It will be hard to get an exterior photo of this church,... More

A peaceful place...to reflect. Gorgeous stain glass and wonderful architecture. I took two not so great pictures. I didn't feel comfortable taking any more pictures as it is a church , I thought it best respect that.

Thank sheilaoq
