St. Colman’s Cathedral is a Roman Catholic Cathedral located in Cobh, Ireland

Cobh cathedral is a neo-gothic cathedral, designed by the architects, Pugin and Ashlin. The cathedral is one of the first sights that many tourists get when they travel to Cobh on one of the many cruise ships that call to our town each summer. It towers over the town of Cobh and Cork Harbour. The cathedral was dedicated to St.Coleman who founded the Diocese of Cloyne in 560AD. Coleman was poet to the King of Munster at Cashel. Influenced by St. Brendan and St. Ita, he left the King to become a priest.
