Visiting the Oratory

*Please note: From Monday July 3rd until Monday September 18th there will only be one Mass celebrated daily at 1.00pm. We regret any inconvenience caused. 

In the frenetic heart of the city, only a stone’s throw from the Rotunda Hospital, is a quiet haven of peace and tranquillity. The St Martin Apostolate Oratory is a place to sit and reflect, where you can pray or just gather your thoughts.


Opened in 1977, when the Apostolate moved to 42 Parnell Square, the dedicated Oratory was created to provide a permanent place of intimate and personal worship for all who needed to seek comfort, solace or to give thanks.
