Red Abbey - Review

Built in the 14th century, Red Abbey is the only medieval monument in Cork and is known for its signature red sandstone. The abbey is an Augustinian friary and was occupied by local friars till the rebellion of 1641. Located on the formerly known Cumberland Street, the Red Abbey has a vast history of acquisitions and reigns- also being used as a sugar factory in the 1700s.

In the late 1900s, archaeologists discovered human bones along with medieval walls and pottery- adding an even more intriguing charm to the place.

Today only a tower remains of the medieval abbey standing tall in its red and white walls. Take a walk around the tower to get take in yet another one of Cork’s fabulous history.
