This is the Church of Ireland St. Munchins on the same side of the river as King John's Castle, not to be confused with the Roman Catholic St. Munchins on the other side of the river. The churchyard is open weekdays during usual working hours but the church itself is permanently closed. The headstones are interesting and the view is... More

Located at the thomond end of Clancy's strand (and not the one pictured, which is the Protestant or C of I church), St Munchins (or Mainchains as it would have been known away back) is a fine church, built in a cross shape, with a main aisle and two side aisles.

This is not the same St. Munchin's church that is on Clancy Strand (as noted in the tripadvisor listing). However, it is the... More

This should refer to St Munchins church on church street, beside the castle. You can actually see one church from the doors of the other, about a three minute walk. It was rebuilt in 1827 and has apparently been the location of places of worship as far back as the 5th century. Island theatre company had their h.q there until... More

Contrary to what trip advisor says, this church is open and functioning as a place of worship. Masses are held there regularly.
