Popped in here briefly after a walking tour of Cobh. The stained glass is very impressive. The organ was being refurbished during our visit.

Cobh is a lovely town to walk around and the cathedral is this town’s crown jewel. Came to the cathedral in order to get a picture of it with the lovely painted houses nearby. Was not disappointed.

Cobh Cathedral is a newer cathedral but is no less grand than many of Europe's great houses of worship. Perched on a ledge overlooking the city of Cobh and the famous waterfront and harbor, the Cathedral features Gaelic and seafaring influences. The tour is self-guided...More

This is a beautiful cathedral - inside and out! When we arrived on the Sunday morning there was a funeral in progress which was unusual to see on a Sunday. Apparently it’s common in recent years due to demand. After a tour of Cobh itself...More

The cathedral is absolutely stunning inside and worth a look around. So much detail in everything from the beautiful ceiling to all the statues.

This is a beautiful church full of history. It is moving to think this may have been the last church your ancestor saw when leaving Ireland.

We stopped in here on a Sunday. Our cruise ship stopped and we walked up a gigantic hill to attend the 1030 Mass. This is an old and stately cathedral. The altar is beautiful and the congregation was welcoming... we were blessed to be here.
