The church is a fantastic meeting place in central Dublin. Offering a lovely festive atmosphere this time of year! The food is always consistently good! Beers , wine etc are the same! Sometimes service can be slow BUT it's a large bar with cocktails also on offer so it's to be expected! Try it and see!

We came here for lunch. Stunning place with nice food, however... we walked in and were not sure wether to take a seat or wait to be seated. We then overheard a barman swearing and bad-mouthing a customer behind the bar to his colleague.

We learned about this beautiful church and it's history on a walking tour and decided to come back for lunch. The dining experience and the quality of the food is just wonderful. Highly recommended.

Stopped at the Church to see the Irish step dancers and have a few appetizers. It was all decorated for Christmas! Our group of 8 was seated right up front just behind where the dancers would be. Music was very good but the dancers only did two dances in the hour we stayed. Appetizers were huge portions enough for 2-3... More

Not the best part of town but when you go in it's fabulous. Aptly named as it used to be a church and sights in there to remind you. Outdoor dining while on the side of a road is protected by lovely hedges and you feel like you're near a park. Very well done. Good food, great city buzz and... More

We came here on the recommendation from our hotel and what a lovely surprise. A beautiful old church that has been renovated into a restaurant that still retains the windows and organ. It was really busy on the Friday afternoon but had a nice atmosphere. We sat upstairs where we could admire the pretty Christmas tree. We had two Baileys... More

We had a staff meeting in this lovely place but we left very disapointed. We had to walk around to find waiters and asked them to take our order wich was late. Then again we had to find waiters to take the bill and that was also late. Too bad because the place is really nice.

Thank ana c
