Lovely place to look at and great for the experience, however food in the bar lacks flavour and have had better food for less money elsewhere. Would recommend going for a drink and to look at the church itself. Food might be better in the actually restaurant but have not tried this so cannot comment

we just went here for drinks, to see the church from the inside. The staff is nice, drinks are not more expensive then the rest of temple bar. But what a view!

Had lunch here yesterday...... Very professional and friendly waitress. Restaurant was busy, not much of a delay waiting for our food, Everything was fresh and tasty, Great athmosphere and it's our lunch stop every time we're in Dublin. Keep up the good work.Bathrooms are super clean and worth a visit..

A bit expensive but it is worth trying it. Nice for having lunch, dinner or just to have a drink. You can book to have a private party

I've been here a number of times - it's rather amazing especially when you see the inside the first time - and it's never failed to deliver, be it a quick coffee, drink, lunch or 3-course dinner upstairs. Clean and stylish restrooms too in the basement. Recommended!

Now this venue is different! In an old converted church with a great brunch menu and reasonable prices, this place is excellent for morning coffee and my most recent experience - brunch. The food is reasonably priced with very generous side orders of chips - Irish style potato portions the way it should be - were just delicious!!!!! Staff as... More

Visited The Church twice on our recent trip, once for a late lunch and later for a quick dinner, also to hear the musicians and see the Irish dancers. The goat cheese salad was well presented, with fresh greens and a tasty slice of goat cheese. Wouldn't think that nachos in Dublin would be anything to write about, but they... More

This place is awesome. It has a great drink selection and a wide variety of pub fare. I enjoyed the piri-piri chicken. The Guinness here is good too. They do a Guinness and black currant for the wife with only a slight smile.
