Church of the Immaculate Conception, Wexford Town

Features

The Church of the Immaculate Conception is a large urban church in Wexford town.

The Church of the Immaculate Conception, known locally as the Rowe Street church, is ideal for scenes set in a grand and sophisticated urban church. The church is in a built up and central area of Wexford town. The streets around the building are narrow and busy and so give it a very urban feel.

The building is designed in a Neo-Gothic style. The exterior is cut from old red sandstone and trimmed with light-grey granite. This combination of stone gives the building a visually interesting appearance. Inside the church, the large stain glass window behind the altar leaves an immediate and lasting impression. The church has a large organ in the choir gallery.

The Rowe Street Church was built in 1858 as a companion to the Church of the Assumption on Bride Street. These two churches are laid out to a very similar plan but have some differences. This church is slightly closer to the centre of the town. Both churches were designed by Richard Pierce.

Just 100m away from the church is a Franciscan Friary. It’s a 19th century friary with a late 18th century chapel. This friary may give filmmakers extra options in the area.
