4.7/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
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. Cobh Cathedral is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Cobh Edition.

  • Although we had planned to visit Cobh, we had no idea what we were going to find... And that there was fog and rain... As soon as we entered the city and we saw him, we went direct. We parked (free of charge) just above. With free entry, I have to say that it is much more beautiful and spectacular outside to inside (still worth seeing inside).

  • Nice looking church. I walked up a steep hill to get there, 4/10 would not recommend. I'm out of shape though 
  • We had a very limited time to visit as we had to be back on the coach. Managed to get to the door and realised we didn't have time to visit the inside to do it justice; will have to return as it looks...  read more »
  • The views across Cork Harbour (the largest natural harbour supposedly) are magnificent and the walk up here will give you a workout. Walking around the church (which is the cathedral for the diocese of Cloyne) you can't help but think about the cruel inaction of Bishop Magee.
  • Impressive cathedral. In the tower there is a 42 bell carillon. A trip to Cobh must include a visit to this beautiful building.
  • It's a beautiful church in the beautiful town of Cobh. If you're in to architecture and old buildings this one is for you.
  • One of the best architecture attractions in the Cobh area. Nice walk around cathedral and beautiful views.
  • Cool place
