This church is a beautiful and serene place and lends itself to prayer. It is an imposing church with a wonderful high altar and contains numerous shrines, statues and paintings. There is a shrine dedicated to Blessed John Sullivan SJ here and I remember my father having great respect for Fr Sullivan during the family rosary many many years ago. Situated near the city centre it’s worth taking the time to visit this beautiful church.

This is one of Dublin's finest churches- built in the Roman style. It contains one of Ireland's finest alters. It was built 1829-32 by Joseph B. Keane. The St. Aloysius figure in wood is by Oisin Kelly.
Well worth a visit for its grandeur and beauty.

The impressive facade is the first view of this lovely Jesuit church. Fronted by imposing columns, it has a grand pediment with three holy figures standing atop just to the anterior.

Designed by a Jesuit priest, building commenced in 1829, the year of Catholic Emancipation, and it was opened just a few years later in 1832.

Moving inside is to see a most grand vista. Standing at the back the eye is drawn along the fine nave to the gorgeous high altar area. This is an image of the facade with four columns and a pediment. The altarpiece comprises a fine painting of the crucifixion scene.

A number of side chapels are to be seen. One is devoted to the recent Beatification of Fr John Sullivan, who was brought up in the Protestant faith but converted to Catholicism in his mid-thirties. He was ordained a Jesuit priest in 1907 and was noted for his great holiness thereafter.
