We, the Irish Augustinians would like you to experience our beautiful church of St. Augustine & St.John the Baptist or "John's Lane" church as it is more commonly called. Unquestionably one of Dublin City's most outstanding pieces of church architecture it is visible from all over the city and indeed beyond. We want to share this treasure with you and should you happen to be visiting Dublin, you can easily drop in and take a look for yourself as we are in a very central location. You can find us if you are in the Christchurch/Guinness Brewery area, only five minutes in either direction.John's Lane is not a museum, but a vital and functioning church with daily Masses and confessions, regular weddings, funerals and all the services you usually associate with a church. On this site we would like to show you its outstanding features and open up to you an architectural treasure. John Ruskin (1818-1900) Writer, Critic, Artist & Philospher who heralded the Gothic Revival movement in Britain called the church "a poem in stone".
An iconic landmark on the Dublin skyline since long before Ireland became a Republic, today Johns Lane still continues to draw the eye...
