This is a Working Church, beautiful Architecture and amazing Stained Glass Windows. Located on a walk from Christ Church Cathedral walking on Thomas Street (North Side) on our way to the Guinness Hop Store tour.

One of the more picturesque churches, it is not as austere as others but it actually comes off looking better than most. If churches are your thing, definitely worth checking out.

Dublin isnt blessed with the same fantastic architecture as the likes of Paris or Rome however this cathedral is up there with some of the finest i have seen in all my travels. It might seem a little off the beaten track however its location is actually pretty good if you are heading up to christ church or the famous... More

We like architecture and churches, so of course we had some on our 'to see' list. This one came on our way after visiting the Guinness Storehouse. Glad we took our time to have a glance on our way to the centre. It was impressive!

I visited on a sunny winter’s morning and the early light through the multitude of stained glass windows, illuminating the whole church, was wonderful. The ribbed ceiling has an attractive pale green background. The... More

When ever I am in Dublin I attend mass at John's Lane parish, Fr. K is a friend of mine and such a wonderful priest, I suggest visiting John's Lane and attending mass at least once during your stay in Dublin

Attended Mass here twice. Breathtaking beautiful church. I read about this on tripadvisor before I left for Dublin, but actually stumbled across the church by accident. Dublin is somewhat confusing since roads change names about every block. Not in the best part of town, but if you go during the day, it should be okay. We actually stayed in the... More
