Following completion of the required training, implementation of Covid-19 safety measures and an inspection by a Fáilte Ireland assessor, Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral, Cork has been deemed fully compliant with the Fáilte Ireland Covid-19 Safety Charter.
Awarding of this accreditation is designed to reassure tourists that there is a high standard of measures and protocols in place when they come to visit an attraction. A rigorous scheme of sanitisation, signage, social distancing and through-flow of numbers is required, all of which the Cathedral has fulfilled.
Welcoming the successful achievement of registration with the Safety Charter the Dean of Cork, the Very Revd Nigel Dunne said:
Having already implemented a very comprehensive list of policies and protocols for reopening for worship back in July, we were well placed to ensure that we were compliant with the terms of this new Charter. The assessor who visited us on Monday was very impressed with our setup and with the knowledge and attention to detail demonstrated by our staff. It is great to add this extra layer of reassurance to our visitors that the Cathedral is a very safe place to visit during these difficult and anxious times.
The Cathedral is open to visitors Monday to Saturday 10.00am-1.00pm and 2.00pm-5.30pm with last admission half an hour before each closing time.
