This cathedral is only a short, albeit uphill, walk from the city center by the water, but it is worth it. This cathedral is not only massive, but so ornate. It's amazing to see the meticulous detail that went into it's construction and its beauty rivals that of the famous cathedrals I've seen in Spain. Even if you're not religious,... More

Well worth a visit, spectacular interior and stained glass windows, with a fabulous view over Cobh town and harbor. Probably one of the last things that the poor souls of the ill fated Titanic saw as they left Ireland !!

Cobh Cathedral or rather St Colman's Cathedral (Official Title) towers over Cobh. This Neo-Gothic building took over 50 years to build from a starting point in 1867. Interesting and very beautiful.

This is by far one of the most beautiful cathedrals in all of Ireland. Set on a high hill above the harbor you can see the last port of the ill-fated Titanic below. The windows of this church are breathtaking. Don't miss it when you are in the town. It is worth the walk or drive up the steep hill.

Towering above the harbour, this church is an architectural masterpiece. The beautiful stonework and wooden doors open into a wonderful interior. It has everything you'd expect in a well preserved european cathedral, fantastic carved ceiling, magnificent high altar, a beautiful organ rose window. The list of aesthetically pleasing parts to this building are a delight for the eye. A must... More
