This church is distinctive because it has 3 red doors. This church has a special place in history because this was the place where Bram Stoker got married - before this I had thought of Bram Stroker as Romanian with Dracula and suddenly I realise that he was Irish.

Having visited my ancestor's place of worship - the elegant St. Stephen's in Mount Street Square, which was closed - we went on the its mother Church of St. Ann. There could not have been a greater contrast in architectural styles; I love St. Stephen's Georgian elegance but was not very keen on St. Ann's baroque style. However, I'm very... More

The turbulent history of Dublin and indeed Ireland may have had something to do with the long completion time for this project on which commenced in 1720. The interior memorials and artefacts are well worth examining in detail for anyone who has a feel for the history of Dublin. Dedicated to Saint Anne as is the adjacent street (South Anne... More

This historic Anglican church dating from the early 18th century has an attractive and impressive facade, right on a busy city centre street. Moving inside one is immediately struck by the the lovely features. One of the most delightful is the amount of lovely wood carvings. It is to be seen in the balconies and the altar. The vista along... More

Understated but beautiful interior. Only had a few minutes inside before the door was being closed so I didn't get to walk around, but so happy I got to see the interior. Architecture really special ~ Georgian interior, Baroque west and Neo- Romanesque front. Had Victorian stained glass windows. The parish was established in 1707. Hours per their website are... More

I have never been to a place like it! The father / reverend of the church was standing at the entrance when we arrived for a quick visit of the church. He welcomed us and asked where we were from and then said, don't forget to put something in the pot, minimum contribution is 3 euro...... Bizarre! Not an outstanding... More

Just walking around by myself I noticed this church with it's bright red door. I walked to it and went inside. I was greeted by the pastor and asked to sign the guest book. The church is old and many local parishioners have been buried there. Their information is on the plaques on the walls. I didn't spend too much... More

I have visited St Ann's quite frequently recently, but this was the first time I had been there for a Healing Service. This is a normal Anglican Holy Communion service, but those who wished could stay on at the altar rail after receiving communion and be given the 'laying on of hands'. I watched the latter from my pew and... More

My ancestors were married here so I may be biased but I found this well worth a look while on Dawson Street.

This is a great place for a quiet prayer. Or they have Holy Communion at 12.45pm on weekdays (see their website: http://stann.dublin.anglican.org/). When I was a student I used to pop in here for concerts - and I'm glad to see they still keep up this tradition. On my last two trips to Dublin I made it for the lunchtime... More
