Amazing! Just a short walk from city. It's small and can only see downstairs but it's absolutely stunning. We weren't allowed visit as a child as we were catholic and church is now Anglican. Well worth the trip. Lovely staff too.

We had a wonderful guided tour of this incredible Cathedral. You really need to have a guided tour to get the full Historic value. It is a beautiful building. We were glad we did this tour.

This is one of the most beautiful and hidden places in Cork City. Check out the fascinating story of its founder Arch Deacon John Murphy "Black Eagle of the North". His story is almost too fascinating to be true!
