The Church (Junction of Mary & Jervis Streets, Dublin 1) – well-rated on TripAdvisor.com, this bar was actually a church at one time (the former St. Mary’s Church of Ireland). Built at the beginning of the 18th century, it boasts many outstanding features, such as the Renatus Harris built organ and spectacular stained glass window. First converted into a bar in 1997, it went through stages of renovations and new owners. Nowadays, its range of services was expanded to include a café, night club and a barbeque area on the terrace. “Ladies Night” specials on Thursday evenings (ranging from cocktails to dinner deals) are popular with the female patrons.
