We found this wonderful tour by reading the guidebooks. We have visited crypts before in other countries but have never had the opportunity to get that close to a mummy. Pretty cool tour and oddly enough, not one that the tour guides seem to want to tell you about. It is across the river from the main tourist area of... More

An interesting place to visit. The church itself is quite intriguing but in the crypt is where the action is. A selection of open and closed coffins each with a story to tell. The bodies on display are quite well preserved, one, a crusader, reputed to be 800 years old. The guide was quite knowledgeable with a smattering of foreign... More

This is a must see to touch the Mummy's hand for good luck! The tour guide is great and gives an excellent history of the church and tombs.

Walked around the church and grounds and it was nice, and free. We did not do the crypt tour for which there is a fee so we probably missed the best part and what might have raised the rating. The small cemetery in back of the church has some very old headstones. This is near the Jameson Distillery so if... More

Went here as we were staying in Smithfield. Had look around church, not much to see really. Small gift shop, got a lovely handmade necklace, made by parishioner for a gift. The tour of the crypt was fascinating and the guide was eerily superb. A must if visiting Dublin, not accessible for people with mobility issues, and no toilet facilities.

Don't expect too much from the Church, its just your average church. The crypts and the guide is where the entertainment is. The guide is entertaining and very quirky in his approach to the crypts. The crypts are fascinating for anybody of any age but you need to be in good condition to go down and up the tight staircase.... More

This is a really cool sight and not quite as famous as the larger cathedrals in Dublin. They have a really cool feature of having under the building crypts with mummified remains to view.

This is one unique experience, I enjoy visiting church's some are very beautiful some have exquisite art but this one is truly an unique experience. You don't come here for the beauty of the building or the stunning architure, I have been here on a number of occasions over the years and it's the same and I love it for... More

A quiet and informative look at a unique church hidden away in the heart of Dublin. We lucked out and had our tour with the preservationist who gave actual history and fact rather than some fascinating but unfounded story. Bryan gave a respectful and knowledgeable tour of the two crypts that are publicly accessible.
