Due to its location in the heart of Dublin and its history, Whitefriar Street Church has become a landmark of the city. It is home to Our Lady of Dublin and to the relics of St. Valentine. The church is run by the Irish Province of Carmelites. In-keeping with the contemplative tradition of the Carmelite Order, Whitefriar Street Church provides an oasis of prayerful silence in the midst of the bustling city.

Monday to Saturday: 3.00 p.m. Mass.
Sunday: 11.30 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. Mass
