Bellevue Church

Features

Bellevue Church is a small 19th century chapel on the banks of the River Slaney in central County Wexford.

The chapel may be an ideal filming location due to its old fashioned looks and ideal location. The unique church has a memorable and distinct exterior of cut deep blue limestone and grey granite. It is of a handsome medieval Gothic inspired style. But the church’s most ideal feature is its location. The church is almost isolated, as its surrounded by farmer’s fields on 3 sides. The picturesque farmland has a timeless and gentle atmosphere. The church also overlooks the River Slaney and one of its widest points, and so has easy opportunities for great vistas.

The church was built between 1855 and 1865. It is believed that famous architect, Augustus Pugin, designed the building. Originally, the tiny church was a domestic chapel attached to Bellevue house. But the big house was burned down in 1923 during the Civil War.
