Welcome to The Church Cafe Bar & Restaurant housed in a 300 year old church.
It boasts a spectacular premium dining Gallery Restaurant, Cafe Bar, Garden Terrace & Nightclub.
The Church is one of Dublin’s most unique venues & major tourist attraction.
Established in 2007.
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 window.
St. Mary’s closed in 1964 and lay derelict for a number of years until it was purchased by John Keating in 1997.
Following extensive restoration over a seven year period, this List 1 building finally re-opened its doors in December 2005 as John M. Keating’s Bar.
The tasteful conversion and refurbishment of this Dublin landmark was acknowledged at the Dublin City Neighbourhood Awards 2006, where it won first prize in the category of Best Old Building
In September 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, Night Club and a Barbeque area on the terrace.
