A beautiful Pugin masterpiece set up a short step from the busy shopping area. A good place to take in the wonderful design and architecture while having time for some quiet contemplation

Grand church squeezed on a small piece of land. Came when they were having mass and the songs filling the church was just beautiful !!

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.

I must see! Beautiful sight to see in the City of Cork. Nestled in Paul's street shopping area, it is a wam and inviting amazing sigh to see. The detail, architecture, and stained glass is impressive

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.

This church was a bit hard to find as it is on a side street off the main shopping street in Cork City.It is well worth the effort.The stunning architecture and stained glass windows are not to be missed.Highly recommended.
