St Multose Church is one of two important medieval buildings found in Kinsale, County Cork. It was built in 1190 and has remained in continuous use through the present day. It was also there that Charles II was proclaimed king in 1649.

The historic St Multose Church dates back to 1190, when it was constructed in Kinsale, County Cork. In 1649, the church bore witness as Prince Rupert proclaimed Charles II king.

Though the building has underwent changes since medieval times, many of its original features survive and it continues to be used as a house of worship today.

Visitors won’t want to miss the Norman French inscriptions, Baptismal font, carved memorials and reredos (ornamental screens) from the Galway chapel.
