I don't want to spoil it by telling you too much, but St. Michan's Church crypt is a very special place as you will see when yuo visit. Do check the visiting / opening times first. Afterwards, have lunch in The Third Space in nearby Smithfield Market.

There is a small fee (4-5 euro) for entrance to the undercroft and tombs. A few are lit up and some are left dark because they are in disrepair or are still actively in use by local families.

Below St Michan are some old burial crypts. They are not easy to view, as they are down steep steps on to irregular ground. Well worth the visit for the mummified remains and history of the church and people buried there

Loved Pat Liddys walking tour of graveyards, this bring the highlight. Innocuous entrance, then down into the catacombs. Well done and preserved. A piece of living history

Tour guide was kinda dry but funny (I guess he wasn't the usual one). You couldn't take pictures but you could take a video. A local bartender recommended to do this (that was how we heard about it). Probably not for young kids.

Great place, recommended by the free walking tour. Must see. The guide puts up a great show in the catacombs.

Quaint church with a very cool crypt tour. It is not a big place, and the tour is not long. If you are in the area it is a fun way to spend an hour or 2.
