It’s free to go in and explore. There’s a display of the original cobblestone road that was discovered when renovating the church. The history of the original church with additions is informative. Very nice architecture. The functioning church was lovely.

I purely stumbled across this Church by accident as I was making my way to Dublinia. This church is truly beautiful and just boarding it is the Old Dublin Wall. I personally didn't go inside but I certainly enjoyed the outside gardens.
