Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    First of this is a Anglican Cathedral. Which is on the island it is called the Church of Ireland. Second this cathedral is the headquarters of the Diocese of Dublin and Glendalough . Third this cathedral is very charming too. Lastly, I would go back here if I could.

    This is one of the oldest churches in Ireland. There are medieval tombs form the 1500s. It's a must see if youre interested in history or architecture. The tour is free too!

    We visited as part of a guided tour of the Castle. The first surprise was that it is no longer a church, even though they were just installing the Christmas Tree and ornate crib! Secondly was the fact that the stonework is only plaster, and that the building was constructed of wood because it is built over the river and it was thought that the weight of stone would cause it to collapse!
    Still a lovely place to visit but such a shame it is no longer used for worship.

    We had some time one morning and walked a few blocks down from our hotel to see this church. The church is located at Parnell Square. It was designed Andrew Heiton from Perth, Scotland. A grand example of a decorated Gothic building, with a spire 180 feet high. The church was erected in 1864 with funding from Alexander Findlater, a local merchant.

    The Church of the Immaculate Conception was very convenient to my hotel on Fishamble Street-just two blocks walk to attend weekend Mass. It is very close to the river, and is in the ancient Viking settlement area of Dublin. The closest entrance of the church from Fishamble Street is on Cook Street. If you turn right out of the Cook Street entrance of the church, you will come fast upon the ancient Dublin city gate and wall. Most of the area has seen redevelopment, and much of the viking character is now gone...but you can get a glimpse, by walking these streets behind Christ church cathedral (Church of Ireland-not Roman Catholic) where a typical viking household site plan is outlined as you walk to the Church of the Immaculate Conception.

    This church is located on Lesson Street near to the bridge. It’s very nice and worth stopping for a look as there is parking.

    I have lived in Dublin my entire life and had heard of this church. However, I only came upon it when I had reason to visit Francis Street recently. Even though it's quite a large building, it's tucked away off the street. What an architectural glory it is! It contains very beautiful stained glass windows and the most sublime ceiling. I think it may have undergone restoration in the last few years as it is fresh and bright inside. It is still a working parish church in this very ancient part of Dublin - The Liberties. Highly recommended.

    The interior of the church is rather a mishmash with the altar sitting uncertainly in the middle of a traditional building. The priest has to turn to left and right when addressing the congregation. Fortunately, the current PP is a good preacher (with a fine singing voice) and holds attention. But in the background is some very fine stained glass that repays close examination.

    Immaculate Heart of Mary Church was near our hotel and offered Mass at a convenient time. Although the décor does not overwhelm it is a quiet venue in which to worship God.
