Superb architecture, peaceful and reflective, situated behind Langton house hotel. Plenty of parking ( free) at the front of the hotel.

Is a very young building, and good to be shown to a teenagers group to see the parts that a gothic church has. The most interesting thing for me: the chromaticism and the wood in the hight side of the build

You cannot look at this church and not want to know everything about it. One of the most beautiful churches in Ireland. Very inspiring to see.

Went to Mass here on St. Patrick's Day. Loved the idea of book in Church foyer for names of Emigrants to be included in prayers on the day

In short, this is the only Church in this Diocese of Ossory that can match what Rome has to offer. Most of the rest of the Churches in the Diocese have the charm and appeal of a dance hall and should be knocked! If a Church has to be built, it should inspire , not serve.

Even being near this place, you automatically want to know more about it. I know I did. The day we went in, it was completely empty so we sat inside for awhile and enjoyed some nice quiet beautiful church time, hah. This place exudes beauty and history. Make sure you visit !

I happened upon St.John's one Saturday evening and since I was close to mass time I decided to go in. Although I am Protestant I felt such a sense of peace here.
