“Love the Bells!!!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

I loved the bells ringing out over Cork City. You can actually climb the stairs and ring them. Couldn't get the hang of it myself. Brilliant!!

“Nice view.”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

The bells are pretty entertaining. You can play around with them on songs like Happy Birthday and other that are there for you to try. Up there, a really nice view of the city, probably the highest place one can get in Cork.

“Nice place to visit.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

It's a famous place in cork. One can ring the bells, and even children can do so. There are a lot of stairs, but it's worth the climb.

“Nice diversion, amazing views”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

St Anne's bell tower is a great diversion within minutes of central Cork. Don't expect much except for a little history, a very up close view of the bells and some amazing pans tonic views of the city. There are very tight, close areas to navigate in the upper bell tower, but the climb is definitely worth the time! Ringing the bells is a novelty for smaller kids (and some adults).

“History plus”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

This place is fantastic, has the best climb up to the bell tower and you can ring out your favourite tunes. I was tracing my family heritage and the grave stones behind gave me some great info. The streets around the church are also a walk back in time. When you get to the very top of the tower you can get the best view of Cork .
