St. Colman’s Cathedral

The carillon is located in St. Colman’s Cathedral, overlooking Cobh town and Cork Harbour.

Recitals take place on Sundays at 16:30 from May to September.

A closed-circuit system is in operation showing the carillonneur playing the instrument. This can be viewed inside the Cathedral at the base of the tower – turn right as you enter through the main door.

A new compact disc of the Carillon of St Colman’s Cathedral is now available. This was produced in collaboration with University College Cork.
