The Bells of Shandon Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

The tower of the Anglican church of St Anne's Shandon contains Cork's most famous attraction, a peel of eight bells installed in 1752, on which visitors can play the local «anthem». The tower is made of limestone on two sides and sandstone on the other two and consists of four blocks of diminishing size bearing the biggest clock face in Cork. The view from the top of the tower (133 steps) is magnificent. The church was built in 1722.
