St Peter and Paul's Church is a perfect refuge from the hustle and bustle of Patrick Street and Plunkett Street. Its gothic revival interior is serenity itself, particularly the 3/4 life-size angel lamps that illuminate the aisles. JUst around the corner from Starbucks and the Crawford Municipal Art Gallery.

We wandered in here while looking around the town, mass was taking place and we set down! It is a really beautiful church filled with angels! Very peaceful! Nice place to light a candle!

This is one of the most beautiful and hidden places in Cork City. Check out the fascinating story of its founder Arch Deacon John Murphy "Black Eagle of the North". His story is almost too fascinating to be true!

We happened upon this church tucked in the middle of the center of Cork. Beautiful inside and out - we would recommend a stop by anyone walking by.

A beautiful Pugin masterpiece set up a short step from the busy shopping area. A good place to take in the wonderful design and architecture while having time for some quiet contemplation

Grand church squeezed on a small piece of land. Came when they were having mass and the songs filling the church was just beautiful !!

We like churches and this was a beautiful Gothic church. The interior was interesting and the light coming through the windows was gorgeous.
