The Church Bar & Restaurant
This project consisted of the conversion of the listed 17th century Church to a bar and restaurant.
The former St Mary’s Church of Ireland is one of the earliest examples of a galleried church in Dublin. Built at the end of the 17th century, it boasts many outstanding features, such as the Renatus Harris built organ and spectacular stained glass-windows.
The refurbishment works included a new roof and the restoration of the interiors, stained glass windows and the Church organ.
A new 6m deep basement structure also provides an additional entertainment area. The lift and spiral staircase which are external to the Church structure are contained within a glass tower and are connected to the Church by a light bridge.
