About Saint John's Church

Saint John's Church is located at John Street Lower in Kilkenny, Co. Kilkenny.

Attributed to William Robertson (1770-1850), this is a very good example of a three bay single cell Board of First Fruits Gothic sytle Church of Ireland church from 1817. It contains fragments of an earlier medieval chapel from 1290. The interior is very well preserved and contains fittings of high quality craftsmanship including carved timber joinery and delicate plasterwork. The grounds inlude an adjoining graveyard and the remains of the late thirteenth-century Saint John's Priory founded by William Marshall The Elder, first Earl of Pembroke for the Canons Regular of Saint Augustine.
