St. Werburgh's Church

Located near Christ Church in Dublin City, St. Werburgh’s is a religious building thought to date from the 12th century. Over the years, it has witnessed many historical events, including the swearing in of the Viceroys of Ireland.

The house of worship was constructed in the 12th century, though it has undergone many renovations throughout its history, including the addition of the present façade in the 1700s. Also, the church’s spire was removed to prevent rebel snipers from using it during Robert Emmet’s uprising in 1803.
