St James' Church, Dingle with its adjacent graveyard, is situated on some 2 acres of sloping ground, on the north east side of the Main Street of Dingle town in County Kerry, Ireland.
It is a living church, a constituent member of the worldwide Anglican Communion and a member of the Tralee and Dingle Union of Parishes.
People of all ages, nationalities and faiths are welcome to visit or attend Sunday service which is in accordance with the Church of Ireland tradition.
Throughout the year, St James' Church also hosts a programme of diverse cultural events ranging from traditional and folk music concerts to exhibitions, lectures and films.
Many famous artists have performed here especially during the annual recording of
RTE Other Voices TV series.
Planning permission has been granted for restoration works which will see this historic building and graveyard preserved and enhanced as a valuable community
resource in the 21st century.
The Friends of St James' Dingle are actively fundraising for this.
We are a charitable organisation whose main objective is to raise funds to conserve the historic church and graveyard of St James', Dingle and enhance and secure their use in the 21st century and beyond as a shared spiritual and cultural space and a valuable community resource.
