St. Audeon's: a good free visit in Dublin

Jump to last reply

Christchurch Cathedral in Dublin has a long history, and is well worth visiting. But it has changed greatly over the years, and its present appearance in largely due to 19th century refurbishments. There is a more authentic medieval church about 100m away.

Make the short journey along High Street, past a row of shops on your right, then St Audeon's RC church (now used by the Polish chaplaincy in Ireland) and the next building is the Church of Ireland St. Audeon's: more than 800 years old, and still in use as a place of worship. There is a good interpretative centre, and it's quite an interesting visit. Well worth 45 minutes of your time and, as the header says, it is free.

[The name St. Audeon is a variant St. Ouen, an important saint in the Norman tradition.]
