St Peter’s Church, Duncormick


St Peter’s Church is unusual historic church in Duncormick in south County Wexford.

The 19th century Gothic Georgian building is an ideal filming location for scenes where an eye-catching historic church is needed. The church’s flamboyant crenellated steeple gives it a strong personality. Depending on the angle, the church can feel imperilous or quite fantastical.

St Peter’s was built in 1815 as a Church of Ireland church. It was converted to a Catholic church in 1996. This conversion gives the building more unusual character. Inside the church there is a certain amusing mismatch between the austere original design of the church and the flamboyant Catholic features and symbols that have been placed inside it. The wooden Gothic-style altar was added in 2002. The exterior stone is cut from Old Redstone with granite detailing.

The location is elevated and overlooks the main road in Duncormick. Pedastrian access to the church is by a set of stairs from the main street and through a wrought-iron gate. Car access is reached from the rear of the building from a housing estate. Around the church is a weathered graveyard.
