Findlater's Church, Dublin 1
Presbyterians were prominent in Dublin as early as 1594 with the
appointment of Rev. William Travers, a Presbyterian clergyman, as the
first regular Provost of Trinity College. Two of the first fellows,
James Fullerton and James Hamilton, were also Presbyterians.
In the 1860s the growth of the congregation and a substantial increase in rent on the Mary's Abbey property made it desirable for the congregation to seek new premises. By the great generosity of Alexander Findlater, a Dublin merchant, the present site in Rutland Square (now Parnell Square) was bought and a church building was erected at a cost of £14,000. The building is popularly known as 'Findlater's Church' and is referred to by that name in two of James Joyce's novels. The opening services were held in November, 1864.
The Abbey Presbyterian Church, opened in 1864 and is more commonly called Findlater's Church, in memory of its chief benefactor, Alexander Findlater, founder of a one-time grocery, wine and spirit chain of stores

We didn't eat at the restaurant so we can't comment on that, but we found the room too hot and stuffy. But we could ask if heating could be turned off.staff we so lovely pleasant and attentive we would definitely stay again
Over the past 10 years I spend an average of 190 nights per annum in hotels throughout Europe and the USA, and the Trinity is my favourite hotel of all! The friendly staff and the accommodation make for an enjoyable stay.
Really nice hotel, staff very helpful. Bed very comfy and rooms nice and warm, would recommend it to all.
