St. Michan's Church is very unique in that it was not busy at all and has lots of interesting history in the crypts. The inside of the church is pretty but the most exciting part of the tour is underneath the church. Our guide who led us through was funny, knowledgeable, and let us touch the finger of the crusader... More

This is a very unique tour where you are able to see real mummies in their final resting place. Tour is quite brief but very unique and not something you see everyday. The tour guide was very knowledgable and acted the part.

I came across St. Michan's Church by chance when I picked up a Dublin attractions map at the train station and noticed their ad. I'm extremely glad that I stumbled upon this hidden gem of an attraction in Dublin -- it's filled with an incredible amount of fascinating and gruesome history that everyone should see! Well, maybe not everyone...there are... More

Well, I can say now that I have touched a mummy. The bodies preserved in the crypts here are really something you should see. Touching the Crusader was a bit creepy but when else would you ever get the chance? The tour guide was also excellent- very entertaining and knowledgeable. Make the time to do this-the tour and seeing the... More

The tour here is of 2 crypts. It is guided,our guide being 'gloriously creepy'! He was very good. Not for the squeamish-there are a number of preserved bodies several hundreds of years old.You can even touch one! Some good stories,to add to the atmosphere. The really odd thing though is that there is no reference to religion at all. A... More

The guide for the tour of the crypts is informative and entertaining. The Church and the crypts are small but well worth the visit and you. Can even shake hands with a crusader.

The first Church on the other side of the Liffey. Nice place to visit. The crypt is awesome and the guide (who let me in) was great.

We are lovers of old buildings, so naturally we had to go here while walking around Dublin. Once you have walked through the graveyard, you get the feel of the age of this church. Once you have paid admition, Peter, the crypt keeper takes you to the heavy steel doors that lead to the vaults below. It is a bit... More

Stopped into the church on a rainy afternoon. The guide came in and asked the above question. Lots of giggles and snickering. Very good tour guide as he took a group of 30+ people from all over the world down into the crypts and explained the history in depth. Best part was getting to step into one of the crypts... More
