Take a few minutes to check out this church and graveyard. Interesting architecture and you will find Lusitania victims buried in the graveyard.

This church was built around 1190. This is one of the oldest churches we have seen. Beautiful stained glass and wood work. Some very old graves in the church yard.

Entry is free and there is information inside about the church’s history. There is also a surrounding cemetery.

Part of your walk through Kinsale should be to the St Multose church. We did not go in as they were having a service, but we did walk the grounds. Worth it

Yes, churches are the center piece of every Irish town or village. This one is at the top of the hill overlooking the town and harbor. It's a pretty walk up and the church is compact enough for a quick tour. Mass was taking place...More

We always try to visit somewhere like this. Old church steeped in history. To take 20 minutes out it is very peaceful and made special by the resident cat snoozing on one of the pews....wife loved this. Definitely call in and ‘say one’.

It is an Anglican Church. You can Google it to find out more. I found it surprisingly difficult to find Roman Catholic Churches in Ireland... but that led me to find out more about the sad history of religion in Ireland.

Just google the St Multose Church in Kinsale. They give a number of times for services.
