St Michan's Church in Dublin, is just a plain looking 18th century church, in a back street adjacent to the famous Jameson's Distillery, you could easily pass it by & not give it a thought. Yet it hides a fantastic secret. In the crypts ( the church has at least 2), accessed and accompanied by a tour guide, we were... More

Great activity to see/do in Dublin city. The tour guide gives a great account of the site and the history behind it. It's short and sweet for those who don't enjoy long tours, and very worthwhile.

This is an awesome experience. The crypts are amazing. The tour guide is funny and really keeps things interesting - you will laugh!! I don't generally like guided tours but this is quick and well worth it. You get to touch a mummy!! So much fun and so very interesting.

I returned to the church to visit the crypt where the main attraction of the church resides. The "stiffs", as the guide calls them, have been remarkably preserved and can be visited close enough to get a good impression of what a dead mummy looks like. The tour-guide alone is worth the trip!

This was a really interesting and entertaining tour that I'd highly recommend, even if it did give me chills up my spine for the entire time we were there! The tour guide really makes the tour. He puts on a really authentic act and, at the end, I was left wondering whether he is actually one of the dead people... More

Attended today with my 8yo daughter. This is a fantastic little church and the tour of the crypts was fascinating. Seeing the naturally mummified deceased insitu below the church and listening to the explanation and history explained by the tour guide was very interesting. The tour of the actual crypts only took about half hour and we are all really... More
