“Impressive church”

St. John the Evangelist Church
Reviewed 11 May 2018 via mobile

I enjoyed the feeling of the church and both the interior and exterior and the impressive architecture.

You don't have to be a religious person to appreciate coming here and as well the stained glass is impressive.

This church is off the beaten track, through town over the bridge and it opens up with large grounds around it.

If you like your history check it out!!

st Johns church is on teh Dublin Road opposite the railway station.
It was built in 1903- with the entire cost borne by the O'Loughlin family of Sandfords Court.
The site was presented by the 3rd Marquess of Ormonde.
The spire planned by architects William Hogan and William H. Byrne was never built.

This is one of many churches in Kilkenny. The architecture is something to see and a must see when in Kilkenny. It was quiet when we went pas at around 14:00.

We found this by accident as it isn't on the medieval mile or necessarily one of the highly sought after attractions. Also, by comparison it is quite new, as it was built during the 1800's. Regardless, it is well worth the stop and is attached to a convent with an Order of nuns who still live there
