Welcome to Whitefriar Street Church

Since the 1270s, the Carmelite friars have been a presence in one of the oldest parts of Dublin city. Whitefriar Street Church has changed and expanded over the centuries but always with the praise and worship of God at the centre of its life. Today it is an oasis of peace and prayer in the centre of our bustling city and is home to the Shrine of Our Lady of Dublin and to the Relics of St Valentine, which draw people from around the world every day. We invite you to discover much more about our beloved church.

Internet Scam regarding the Shrine of St Valentine

It has been brought to our attention that a website - angelvisionary.com - is selling medals of St Valentine purporting to contain soil from Whitefriar Street Church, Dublin. Whitefriars, Whitefriar Street Church and the Carmelites in Ireland have no connection whatsoever to this website, nor have we given permission to them for the use of photographs of the church and shrine which appear to have been taken from our own website. No soil has been taken from beneath the shrine and neither has any soil been taken from the environs of the church and, therefore, their 'Certificate of Authenticity' is fake. The medals being sold do not come from Whitefriar Street Church and are not being sold on our behalf.
