The 7 Best Churches In Dublin To Get Your Ash On This Wednesday
Because mammy still knows
Don't think that mammy doesn't know what you get up while you're in Dublin.
Here are 7 places you can go to get your ash on today.
The Pro-Cathedral, Marlborough Street
It's not for amateurs.
The Carmelite Church, Whitefriar Street
It's rare enough that Ash Wednesday falls on Valentine's week – so now is your chance to visit the church that contains the relics of ol' St Val himself, AND get ashed up.
St Teresa's Church, Clarendon Street
Not only is it nice and central, located just off Grafton Street, but it has one of the most stunning interiors of any Catholic church in town.
Also conveniently close to lots of lovely lunch places.
Church of the Holy Name, Beechwood, Ranelagh
Speaking of lovely lunch places, this is a stone's throw away from Ranelagh village – so you can ash and eat in quick succession.
If you're not fasting, that is.
St Paul's, Arran Quay
For when you fancy keeping it northside, but don't fancy the fuss of the Pro Cathedral.
Mary Immaculate of Sinners, Rathmines
Because you'd always wondered what went on under that famous dome.
Bonus points for that amazing, super-Catholic name.
The Holy Redeemer, Bray Main Street
You know, if you fancy a bit of a trip.
Sorry Queen of Peace; the HR is where it's at.
