Churches & Cathedrals

Ireland was the stronghold of Christianity in Europe for centuries and this legacy is clear today in the abundance of exceptionally beautiful churches, cathedrals and religious monuments to be found throughout the country. Dublin City is home to several of Ireland’s most historically significant and architecturally impressive religious buildings which are well worth visiting while you’re here.

John's Lane Church

600m from Hyatt Centric
While its official name is Church of St Augustine & St John the Baptist, to most Dubliners this distinctive building is known as John's Lane Church and its steeple is the most recognisable landmark on Thomas Street. In fact, it is the highest steeple in the city, standing at over 200 feet (61m).

St. Nicholas of Myra Church

220m from Hyatt Centric
St. Nicholas of Myra is an impressive classical church, designed by John Leeson in the late 1820s with the portico and bell tower added in the second half of the nineteenth century. It was one of the first churches constructed in Dublin following Catholic Emancipation.

St. Audoen's Church

650m from Hyatt Centric
Located in the heart of the walled medieval city, St Audoen's Church is the only remaining medieval parish church in Dublin and dates back to the 12th Century. A very beautiful and intimate setting, its historical and architectural legacy is exhibited in the nearby Visitors Centre which is also well worth a visit.

Christ Church Cathedral

500m from Hyatt Centric
At almost 1,000 years old, Christ Church Cathedral is Dublin’s oldest working structure and one of Ireland’s most popular visitor attractions. It is renowned for its architecture, exquisite floor tiles and the 12th Century crypt which is one of the largest in Britain and Ireland.

St. Patrick's Cathedral

100m from Hyatt Centric
St. Patrick's Cathedral has been part of Ireland's history for over 800 years and today is one of the most popular visitor attractions in Dublin. Built in honour of Ireland's patron saint between 1220 and 1260, St. Patrick's Cathedral is one of the few buildings left from medieval Dublin. It is the largest cathedral in the country.

Whitefriar Street Church

600m from Hyatt Centric
Whitefriar Street Church was founded in 1279. Since 1974, it has been under the care of the Order of Carmelites. The house of worship has notable details including a shrine with the remains of St. Valentine, which Pope Gregory XVI gifted to the church in 1835.
