Within the University College of Cork there is a small chapel called Honan Chapel. Built within the Campus itself, it was built during the First World War, and is still today a remnant of Irish historical heritage! A beautiful testimony of the past, at a time when Ireland was still looking for itself politically …

History of Honan Chapel

A religious building dedicated to the preservation of Irish craftsmanship

Honan Chapel, was built in honour of St. Finbarr of Cork. Consecrated in 1916, it bears the name of his main patrons, the Honan, a wealthy Cork merchant family.

Since its opening, the chapel has been dedicated to showcasing Cork’s Irish craftsmanship, and has a particularly rare collection of liturgical objects. The Irish artists of the time, in the midst of their quest for national identity, fell back into the Celtic Revival, an artistic movement pushing the Irish to return to Celtic arts.

Nowadays, the chapel is still active and can even be visited. Only university graduates can even get married there!

Visit the Honan Chapel

A place marked by history and the arts

The Honan Chapel has a style of hiberno-roman inspiration. Its floor, covered with mosaics, contrasts beautifully with the stained glass windows of the building. Calm and silence are the order of the day there, and you will be able to admire many works of art on the spot, sometimes contemporary, sometimes older. The furniture also dates from the First World War and has been remarkably preserved.

Don’t miss the organ at the entrance of the chapel: it’s a marvel!
