A stunning building both outside and in. Very peaceful to quietly walk around and reflect. Well worth a visit.

This edifice dominates the lovely town of Cobh and a visitor should consider setting aside 20 mins or so to view it. There is a free car park directly opposite the north side so if in a car there is no walk up the steep hill on which it is sited.

This place is absolutely beautiful. Much to see and walk around but it can be done in about 30 minutes. It's free to get into and has many photo opportunities. My favorite is all the stained glass . They also have a little store in the back but only accept cash.

If you are in Cobh, it is worth the time to stop in to see the cathedral. The craftsmanship that went into this building inside and out is incredible. The stonework, carvings and stained glass were all stunning.

The day our group visited they were having a special anniversary service, a lot of visitors and first communion service. A lovely Irish band playing which later walked through the town. The Cathedral itself is beautiful in side and was decorated because of the special service. Its a short walk up hill from the town, but worth it.

Ireland is well-blessed with churches and cathedrals, but this is one of the most striking, given the setting above the town to dominate the skyline. I'd have liked to have seen it from a boat, but as time was short I made the hike up to see it, and that was well worthwhile. It's pretty easy to find the route... More

Uphill walk from cruise dock but worth it. Several tours include this stop. Ancient, beautiful, great city views.

My husband and I visited the cathedral what an amazing site looming over the town, Yes it's quite a climb to get there but well worth the climb. Inside was indescribable we spent a long time taking in the whole place. This is a definite must see. We was given a bookmark on our way out excellent.
