This wonderful church has a fascinating lineage. Dating from 1178, not long after the arrival of the Normans, its name derives from St. Werburgh, Abbess of Ely and patron saint of Chester in England, who died in 699. A wonderful facade is the first view...More

By far, my favorite church in Dublin. It is old and way less glamurous than the nearby super-christchurch, but St Werburgh's is silent and charming, usually not many people visit it.

I visited St Werburgh's while attending a conference in Dublin. What a surprise! A complete 18th century interior, plaster work, pews and galleries intact and a most lavishly carved pulpit. But the fabric is urgent need of help, with obvious problems of settlement and damp...More
