Castlehyde Church lies close to the magnificently restored Castlehyde House, the Irish home of entertainer Michael Flatley. Castlehyde was the home town of Douglas Hyde, the first president of Ireland, and the main house was built around 1760.

The church is on the list of protected structures and it has some ornate architectural details inside and out. A stone carving reading MDCCCIX indicates that the church was built in 1809 (see picture 19). Although the roof is still in place there are some missing roof tiles that let in streams of light. Without some intervention over time the wind will remove more of the tiles and the church will be completely exposed to the elements. Advantage nature.
