A lovely, large church right in the centre of Cork. Peaceful, very well-maintained, lovely feel to it. And simply superb stained-glass windows. Recommended.

Beautiful Church in the middle of the hustle and bustle, always visit it when I am in Cork as it is just off Patrick Street and Paul Street and is lovely for a visit in the middle of all the crowds and shopping
