A beautiful church where Paul Henry – Ireland’s greatest landscape artist lies

St Patrick’s Parish Church is located in Enniskerry village in County Wicklow. It was commissioned by Mervynn Wingfield 7th Earl of Powerscourt in 1859 in response to the Protestant population of the village not having a local church. Before this, they had to attend church on the grounds of the Powerscourt Estate. The church is surrounded by stunning scenery and Sugar Loaf Mountain can be seen as it’s ‘backdrop’. The grave of artist Paul Henry (1876-1958) lies in the graveyard. Henry is regarded as Ireland’s greatest landscape artist and is famous for his scenes depicting Connemara and the West of Ireland.
