Amazing to think that Wexford has 2 identical churches within walking distance of each other. It's worth a look even if you aren't particularly religious because, the stain glass work is absolutely beautiful.

Both worth a quick pop in if you are passing to admire the fine Victorian Gothic revival craftsmanship. Viewed from the other side of the river the effect of nearly twin churches is rather odd but memorable.

Beautifully maintained and a lovely sense of tranquility in side. The exterior is also a lovely pink-red stone.

Harry Clarke (1889 to 1931) was responsible for over 130 Stained glass commissions and a great pleasure to sit in the peace and solitude of the Church of the Immaculate Conception and reflect on his major work above the altar an enlightening experience.

Beautiful spiritual oasis with an unbroken succession over 140 years of perpetual eucharistic adoration. The stained glass window by Harry Clarke must be seen and the choir accompanied by the Telford organ must be heard.

The most interesting thing about these two churches is that they were built at the same time and only a few hundred yards apart. The design of both is the same, which must be unique in Irish churches. They are both spacious and well laid out and it is good to see they are still in daily use for religious... More

These two 19th century churches were designed by a pupil of the great architect Pugin and built at the same time as each other. The spires dominate the town's skyline. The stained glass is excellent.

Rowe St and Bride St Church's are famine Church's. Both beautiful. Was at Mass in Rowe St Church over the weekend. Inspiring. The spires of both Church's can be seen for miles. Wexford is a beautiful medieval town, bursting with history. It's is also a great shopping town, restaurants and pubs. The most beautiful, quiet beaches, for swimming, boating, fishing,... More

These twin churches are only a few minutes apart and both have ample parking facilities. The Rowe street church is just minutes from the town center and the Bride street church is just minutes from the south end of town and also just up the hill from Tesco. You could park up for a few hours and enjoy the peaceful... More

Lovely twin churches to visit if you are in Wexford and out and about for a walk. Have a look around or enjoy a couple of minutes peace and quiet regardless of your religion. They are only a couple of minutes walk apart and the Bride Street Church has a convent attached which is quite unusual these days so it... More
