St Johns Priory


John Street
Republic of Ireland

St John’s Priory is a 13th-century religious ruin found in Kilkenny City. The Augustinians inhabited the priory until the mid-15th century when it was handed over to the state under the rule of Henry VIII.

Over the years, the original structure was mostly destroyed and today, all that remains is the choir. In the 1800s, the Lady’s Chapel underwent renovations and is presently used for Church of Ireland services. It is noted for its many spectacular windows.
