Built in 19th century, St. Fin Barre’s Cathedral is known as one of the most cathedrals in Cork. The regal structures with gothic architecture are known for its French influences while the statues show just how much the founder Burges adored everything French.

  • Maybe it was my lucky day or maybe we arrived late on Sunday afternoon but we weren’t asked to pay or make a donation to explore this AMAZING cathedral! Wow - it really blows Dublin’s places of worship right out of the water! Stunning stained glass and incredible organ! You’ll be mesmerised when you gaze up at the height of the ceiling - incredible!

  • Very nice Cathedral in centre on cork city. You cannot miss this place. Its got great views from there. It takes up fair amount of sky space its fairly big. Popular with Tourist's, family's friends or by self. Bring camera. Nice walk or cycle one of the Coca cola hire bikes see lot more of Cork city. Loads of Cycle lanes all around city. Saint Fin Barres is worth a look at.

  • Very nice cathedral with a lot of cool history and awe inspiring architecture. A must see if in Cork

  • Very nice place to visit. Inside very beautiful. Some souvenirs inside. Staff very welcome. Only thing why I give 4 🌟 is that you need to pay entrance. I don't like to pay entrance to church. I will give for maintenance, for cleaning everything but I don't like to pay entrance.

  • Very well appointed 19th century gothic cathedral. Architect, William Burges deserves to be better known. A must see when in Cork.
