Witness the beauty of the Roman Catholic Cobh Cathedral, which took 47 years to complete. E.W. Pugin, George Ashlin, and Thomas Coleman began construction in 1867, and it was not completed until 1915. Officially named St. Coleman's Cathedral, this religious site is known for spectacular neo-Gothic architecture. Tour the cathedral and admire its exterior and interior beauty. The cathedral houses the largest church carillon in Ireland, featuring 49 bells. You can also attend Mass, as the cathedral remains in operation.

  • A must see, when visiting Cobh. Stunning Cathedral perched high upon a hill overlooking Cork Harbour.  more »
  • Called in to Cathedral and loved the Stain glass windows , a huge place and stands proud on the hill in Cobh  more »
  • Well worth going in! Warning though, it's high up and if you struggle walking, take a taxi up there. The cathedral itself is wonderful and well worth the climb. Quiet and treated as a cathedral should be, there are guides who can take you round and show you all the parts, its history and links with Titanic and the Lusitania. There is a tiny cathedral shop at the exit; the bigger shop is further round the back, outside the church itself opposite the car park there.
  • A very beautiful Gothic style Christian church. The largest bishop church in southwestern Ireland. Plain and solemn, gorgeous and elegant. Mosaic mosaic floor, beautiful religious relief. A long room dome and a suspended window with colored glass. Sitting inside will feel unlimited peace and happiness. Every afternoon, the colorful sunshine from the window will be beautiful!
