Just next to Pearse Street Station, St Andrew's is a Roman Catholic Baroque church built in 1837. I would definitely recommend visiting on a Sunday at 11.30am for their mass service, all are welcome and the choir and organist are truly amazing. If you're lucky enough, the professional opera singers might be there.
The church is also worth a visit, it has some good paintings brought in from Rome. The organ was built by John White and it originally contained many ranks of orchestral Cavaille-Coll pipework. The church forms a Roman Cross and the altar is comprised of four pillars of Scagliola they support a pediment copied from the Lantern of Demosthenes at Athens. The tabernacle is a recreation of the triumphal arch of Titus in Rome.
