Establishment
“The history of St. Peter’s Church dates back to 1,270 when King Henry III granted patronage of the church to the Bishop of Cork. St. Peter’s church was deconsecrated in 1949. The building remained dilapidated until 1988 when Cork City Council took on the task of restoring this historic building as a public cultural facility. In 2016 the facility management company LeisureWorld were awarded the management contract for St. Peter’s to be operated for 2016 as Cork’s Centre of Commemoration for the 1916 centenary programme. It now hosts varied exhibitions & displays which change periodically. It is also home to Portafilter Cafe, worth the visit for their great coffee alone.”

Japanese Restaurant
“This authentic restaurant has dark, moody décor and something of an industrial feel. The interesting monthly omakase menu cleverly mixes long-standing Japanese techniques with local ingredients and modern touches. A lucky few get seats at the counter to watch the Sushi Master's deft preparation. - MICHELIN guide inspectors”
