Built at the beginning of the 18th century, The Church is home to over 320 years of curious history. The former St Mary’s Church of Ireland closed in 1964, before being bought by John Keating in 1997. It took seven years to fully restore the stunning building, before reopening in 2005. The building was bought by new owners and renamed “The Church Bar and Restaurant” in 2007, and it now boasts a Café, Night Club and a Barbeque area on the terrace. Aside from being a cracking night out, The Church offers visitors the chance to learn more about Dublin’s rich history, and it’s definitely worth a visit during your stay at Jacobs Inn!
