The Church was closed but we visited the graveyard which had some very unique vaults, tombs, and headstones. It was really very interesting!

The church is closed but you can walk around the grounds and see very old graves. It is located across the way from King John's Castle.

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
