Overview

St Peter’s Cork is situated in the heart of the Medieval city and is Cork’s oldest church with parts of the building dating back to 12th century. Though no longer a religious venue, the building is still open to the public and is a wonderful place to visit, an oasis of culture and heritage in the centre of the city. The venue can also be hired for corporate events, private receptions and even wedding ceremonies! St Peter’s offers a fantastic introduction to Cork culture with a central exhibition, A City by the Sea, telling the story of Cork from early settlers to modern day. Our friendly staff will be happy to show you around the venue and offer further information on the latest exhibitions and events in St Peter’s and around the city.

A well presented and poignant presentation of the events leading up to the Irish struggle for independence. All the significant events of 100 years ago are clearly documented around the walls of this former church, with the main and the minor protagonists remembered.

A deconsecrated church located on what was once the heart of medieval Cork - hence the name of the street being North Main Street. This church completed in late 18th century on site of an earlier church still has some evidence of its history -...More
