Welcome to the Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, Cork City, Ireland.
A visit to Cork City would not be complete without seeing one of its most important public buildings, the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, just off the city’s main thoroughfare, Saint Patrick’s Street. The Church is open each weekday from 9.30am to 5pm and on Sundays from 9.30am to 8pm. Details of Church services can be found on this website. In addition to its main function as a place consecrated for prayer and the worship of God, the Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul is also important due to its major architectural significance. The church is also the repository of baptismal, confirmation and marriage records dating back to 1765. These records provide a rich source of information for individuals in Ireland and around the world tracing their genealogy and composing their family trees. Details of how these records may be obtained are also available on this website. Whether your interest in Saints Peter’s and Paul’s is religious, cultural or genealogical, please be assured of a Cead Mile Failte in this haven of tranquillity in the centre of Cork City.
