Beautiful church. As I travel, I go on every church I come across with the doors unlocked. Painting inside this one very different. On St Stephens Green so easy to poke your head in as you pass by.

University Church ( never mind the Newman bit - this is a piece of UCD marketing) is a gem! On the edge of Stephen's Green, it has a very small presence and it is very easy to miss it. Don't... Go inside... it won't take...More

My wife and I were walking by and came upon this very interesting church. Cardinal Newman was one of the great intellects of the Catholic Church and it was interesting to see his statue here and see the church.
