Want to buy a Dublin church? It's yours for a mere €575k

Because who wouldn’t like the freedom to run around a church by themselves, right?

THIS COULD EITHER be spooky, calming, or just a really great place to throw a party.

A former church is up for sale in Drumcondra in Dublin with an asking price of €575,000.

The Victorian building on St Alphonus Road on the city’s northside has been deconsecrated and is currently used as an artist’s studio.

While the pews have been taken out of the former church, it still has all of the fancy marble structures intact, including the altar.

The estate agents helpfully advise that it could be used by church or community groups, converted into offices, or just used as a pretty amazing gaff.

At least given the proximity to Croke Park, you could always drop in before a match for a quick prayer.
