Founded in 1707, St Ann’s striking Romanesque façade was added by the architects Deane and Woodward in 1868. The best view of the façade is from Grafton Street, looking down Anne Street South. Inside the church are many colourful stained-glass windows that date back to mid-19th century.
There are numerous famous past parishioners of St Ann’s including the Irish patriot Wolfe Tone, who was married at St Ann’s in 1785, Douglas Hyde, the first president of Ireland and Bram Stoker, the author of Dracula.
