Romanesque Churches 11th - 12th Centuries
The first Romanesque church to be built in Ireland was Cormac’s Chapel (1127 – 1134) in Cashel, Co. Tipperary. This was the first building in Ireland that was completely planned and designed. Its revolutionary construction, barrel and double barrel vaults, and decoration was inspirational across Europe.
Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin is a combination of a variety of different styles as its building took place over a number of centuries. It contains elements of Romanesque and Gothic architecture. It also underwent huge renovations during the Victorian era. Nonetheless, it still remains a fascinating sample of medieval architecture.
