super short but your man drags it out. Highlight was shaking hands with the mummified crusader. I went along with a local who has an interest in epitaphs he had been a few times and said the guys says the same things. Its only two small crypts so he has to make it entertaining. when I visited there was a... More

The church and the crypts with great to see, however the knowledge of the guide was immense - he knew not just about the church but also various things on the city of each tourist present. Close to the four courts and a worthy hour or so.

The guide Peter created a wonderfully spooky athmosphere, he had a wide range of languages and engaged with the various nationalities to make them feel welcome. It was a great trip through a thousand years of history. It was quite macarbe which was fitting for the city that gave us Bram Stoker and Dracula

This very old church boasts underground crypts with real mummified bodies. Our guide took us through the crypts and told us many eerie tales going back to Ireland's mimicing the French Revolution. We were able to touch the mummies!!! It was all very fascinating and enlightening.

This was an unexpected treat! I love touring old churches in general, and the church itself is an understated beauty. A simple building, built with the varying sizes of warm gray stones that makeup the foundation of Ireland's terrain. Inside appears rather simple at first, basic mahogany wood pews that make you hope for a short service, simple choir stalls... More

Seemed short, but this was only the first part of the visit, where the mummies are shown. The second part of the visit and the stories told - very detailed, very interesting. The guide, of course, did great. An actor - applause :)

Very interesting place with a great guide to take you down into the crypt. We went down as part of a group of mixed nationalities but the guide was quite animated so got his point across using words in all languages. A must visit in Dublin!

Regardless of your age, the crypts underneath the church are a must see. One of the best things I did while in Dublin!! Our tour guide was very informative (and funny) and told us all about the crypts and the people buried there.
