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.

My daughter and I did this tour on the recommendation of our B&B host and we were not disappointed! The church is Dublin's oldest church north of the Liffey and sits over a unique treasure - mummies! For 5€ you get a guided tour of the encrypts below the church and learn about some of the legends behind the people... More

If you like a bit of history and enjoy something a bit creepy then this is the place. The guide who showed us round was very funning and added to the experience. I would advise to have a look around the church and the grave yard as this is very interesting too, as well as doing the crypt tour.

You can really see the mummies but the best thing is the story behind it which is told by a 'guide' who really knows how to tell it! He makes it def worth to go here for a visit!

I took my 8 and 12 year old nephew on half term to St Michans with my brother. I had heard the crypt guide was really good. He was and it was an excellent tour enjoyed by all. There is lots to do in the area they enjoyed a visit to the wholesale fruit and veg market round the corner... More
