The Church Café, Bar, Restaurant, Club – Dublin, Ireland

The former St. Mary’s Church of Ireland is one of the earliest examples of a galleried church in Dublin. Built at the beginning of the 18th century, it boasts many outstanding features, such as the Renatus Harris built organ and spectacular stained glass windows.

St. Mary’s closed in 1964 and lay derelict for a number of years until it was purchased by John Keating in 1997, who undertook extensive restorations, before re-opening the doors in 2005 as John M. Keating’s Bar.

In 2007 the building was acquired by new owners and renamed “The Church Bar & Restaurant” and its range of services was expanded to include a Café, Juice Bar, Night Club and a Barbeque area on the terrace.

It is certainly a place I would like to sit and have a few cold ones in, and the menu looks devine.
