Saint Fin Barre's Cathedral, Cork Reviews - Write a Review

  • I found this historic structure quite beautiful, grandiose and overwhelming. The grounds are meticulously maintained and present a park like atmosphere that is very conducive to meditation. I spent an hour touring the grounds. The church structure could use a good cleaning though.

  • Place itself has a long history and a good atmosphere. Good place for a walk. My kids like to run outside. Cathedrale is big and quite interesting, but has no charm. It's worth to visit the fortress next to it also.

  • Great history and brilliant architecture, old tombstone. Very good restaurants nearby. Well worth a visit.

  • The cathedral is big and nice from the outside, the inside is less beautiful than the outside, but if you're interested to see the inside, it isn't bad. You just expect more if you'll see the outside. The price to enter is 5 euros for adults, 3 for students and seniors, so a bit pricey

  • The finest example of neogothic architecture in Ireland and maybe overall. The cathedral is one of the most easily recognisable landmarks in Cork, and the staff inside in really fond of explanations about its history and artistic heritage. The souvenir shop is not even too expensive.
