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

A group of friends went for Christmas carol service here. The church is steeped in history being THE church in Dublin for centuries. It has been rebuilt a few times in its history and today’s incarnation is a beautiful Georgian edition. Keep an eye when...More

When going to Ireland, there are so many small churches and historic buildings that you must be careful not to miss. Keep your eyes open, because there are places you might walk past, never knowing the importance. St. Weburgh's Church was where my great-great grandmother...More

If you are visiting Dublin, particularly Dublin Castle and Christchurch Cathedral, you could very well walk very close or past this place, not knowing it could be an item on your Tripadvisor itinerary! An interesting little church, situated opposite a very popular fish and chip...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

From the outside St Werburgh's barely looks like a church but venture beyond the gloomy exterior and you are in for a real surprise. St Werburgh's was once the chapel royal and is richly furnished> The amazing pulpit is carved from Irish oak and is...More
