We are delighted to be reopening the doors of St Peters Cork on Tuesday 1st of December!
Come visit Cork 1920 – The Burning of a City exhibition on its 100th Anniversary, free of charge or grab a coffee in our North main street coffee shop.
Open Monday – Saturday 10am-4pm.
Cork’s past is full of stories of hope in the face of adversity, and of people working together to overcome all kinds of challenges. We’re looking forward to welcoming you and to capturing your imagination with our state-of-the-art exhibition that gives new insights into a period which was to alter significantly the landscape of Cork city militarily and politically and which ultimately led to the creation of the Irish Free State. The people, events, and history have been combined and are all interwoven to create a cohesive and powerful history of Cork’s tragic past that captures the essence of that period, not through the cold light of day, but by bringing to life the very embers that destroyed our beautiful city in 1920. Some audio visual elements may not be available but we have alternative viewing options.
St. Peter’s Cork is a free attraction, and while numbers will obviously be limited, pre-booking is not necessary. We will reopen to the public from Monday 29th June 2020, seven days a week, from 11 – 3 with the last recommended entry for the exhibition at 2.30.
Café & Wine Bar
Our café team will be serving takeaway teas & coffees in addition to a selection of wine that can be enjoyed in our stunning city secret garden. A screen at the café has been erected for your safety and the safety of our team. Please use contactless payment.
Cork 1920 Gift Shop
Our Gift Shop will also reopen giving you an opportunity to browse through our range of high-quality books and prints.
