Period Buildings



St Anne’s Mental Asylum, Cork

This is a vast and intriguing site above the River Lee, which covers some 53 acres and comprises numerous fascinating period buildings, including two ‘Hospitals’, (St Kevin’s is the red building & Eglinton Lunatic Asylum is the grey building), 4 ruined churches and a host of ancillary buildings. Joined by a tunnel, the Asylum complex is said to be the longest building in Ireland ( almost 1 mile!) and possibly even Europe.

It is a truly awesome site, despite now being partly derelict and forlorn. Some of the site has been converted into flats, but the majority sits empty; brooding and dark – a testament to its terrible history. Used as a backdrop, this old asylum is visually stunning and ‘Harry Potteresque’ in style and size. Potentially an amazing filming location for Horrors etc.

The interior is derelict and not accessible to film crews, but this may change in future when development plans start again. Permission should be sought from both the HSE as landowners & the residents in the apartments.
