From the outside this Francisan church looks enormous. Its so beautiful inside. Very high ceilings and lovely mosaics. Lots of Saint statues..including one of my favourite St Anthony. Very peaceful. Nice way to spend a few minutes with God.

A 1950s (I think) and rather massive Roman Catholic church built in a Byzantine style. It looks like it belongs in a Mediterranean city not tucked behind a courthouse in a soggy Irish city! Everything about it is done on the grand and very ornamental...More

Reminds me of my childhood when my father insisted we go to church every Sunday. Good few people in there when I visited.

This is a red bricked domed church a few minutes away from Cork's main street, just behind the columned courthouse in Washington Street. It's a prayerful place with lots of side altars, not very old. It's owned by the Franciscan Friars.

The Church of St. Francis has copper domes that have now turned green. The inside is not as ornate or stunning as some of the others in Cork, but it's worth visiting none the less.
