    A quiet place in the city

    by gordonilla Written May 25, 2015

    The church is open to the public, but I have to say that when we visited the robed staff on duty were not that pleasant. I asked about going upstairs and they were negative in tone and response; however shortly afterwards their excuse of H&S matters was forgotten.

    The church has had a fairly high class group of worshippers when first opened. It is now in the heart of the city and no doubt has a much more egalitarian approach to those who can attend worship in the church.

    This beautiful church caught my eye when walking along Grafton Street on our wat to St Stephens Green. Looking down the beautiful side street, Anne Street, we saw the beautiful facade of this church.

    This first thing we noticed was the colourful street full of activity and to top it off the church at the end of the street. What a setting and the sun was shining the moment we took our photo.
    The church is over 300 years old, founded in 1707, however the Romanesque facade was added in 1868.

    We did not have time to go inside the church. Details and more photos can be found on the web page link listed below.

    The interior of the church was designed by Isaac Wills and completed in 1720. The original, partially completed facade was replaced by the present imposing neo-Romanesque structure by Sir Thomas Dean in 1868.

    Famous people associated with St. Ann's include Wolfe Tone and Bram Stroker, author of Dracula.

    This church was built in 1707, but the impressive roman facade has just been added in 1868 by the architects Deane and Woodward. You get the best view from Grafton Street. The multicoloured glass windows are very beautiful. Some of the most famous members of this parish were the patriot Wolfe Tone who married here, Douglas Hyde, the first president of the republic of Ireland, and Bram Stoker, the writer of Dracula.

    Church off of Grafton

    I kept thinking I'd go down this side street (to the left when walking toward St. Stephen's Green) and visit this chuch, but I never did. The facade looked great from Grafton Street.
