December 2014, group dinner of 23 people. The venue itself is stunning but the incredibly welcoming and helpful staff made the evening. The food fantastic and the atmosphere great fun. We would highly recommend The Church - thanks to all there.

We went to a different pub/club every night of our stay in Dublin, and this was the place we reserved for our last evening in Ireland. It did not disappoint. The Irish dancers and musicians performing in front of the back drop of a gorgeously renovated church was an absolutely surreal experience. The food was good and fresh (I had... More

With so many restaurants to choose from in Dublin this is one which is well worth a visit. Situated in a converted church the restaurant has a great buzz about it and is a popular venue. Attentive staff, good food at a reasonable price all go to make a visit an enjoyable experience.

I visited the Church about 2 years ago & was very impressed. Having completed some pre Christmas shopping today with the HA, we decided to revisit. The food is still great, the staff are still very friendly but some light entertainment has been added. This takes place after 20.00 hours & consists of a variety of music, song & dance.... More
