Was on the viking splash & our tour guide told us about St Michan's, never heard of it before & I live in Dublin. So my daughter & I went to have a look. We were not dissapointed. We walked around the church first & then our tour guide came & got us. We went down under the church to... More

I loved this place! It was suggested to me by a tour guide and I'm so glad I went! There's not many places you can explore the crypts and see the mummified bodies. Definitely worth looking in to.

My wife and I aren't especially into religious history nor churches in general, but we were intrigued by the description of the crypt tour on offer. The tour guide brought the whole atmosphere of the crypts and their history to life, and the condition of the mummies was spectacular. A captivating little place, and a great value tour. Worth seeking... More

The crypt at St. Michan's is an unexpected marvel tucked away in Dublin. On your way to or from the Jameson Distillery, make a stop here to visit (and touch) the bodies of Dubliners passed. Super creepy, but so different and interesting. Plus, you can do this tour in well under an hour, so it won't alter your itinerary or... More

Our tour guide really made this fun. He was both informative and entertaining. Of all the tours we took in Dublin, this tour guide was the most enjoyable to listen to. Very expressive. The crypt itself is small and takes less than a half hour to complete - I think we were only down there about 20 minutes. Inside there... More

Very easy to find, located beside the law library, Luas and behind the four courts, it’s a great way to spend an hour and €5. The lady in the shop couldn’t have been friendlier as she sold me the ticket. I wandered around the church as I waited for the guide. I love the distinctive smell of an old church!... More

Had visited here about 12 years ago and had a great visit with a really really (how to put this… ) theatrical ? guide. The guide is a major asset to this little known about church and it’s vaults. We had wondered if the guide would still be there and when looking up the reviews here on Trip Advisor we... More

Saw mummies 150, 400 and 800 years old. Excellent experience and worth seeing. Makes you think a lot about death.

Went here recently with my son and was not disappointed. Seeing the preserved mummies was amazing and the tour guide Peter made it all the better. Touched the hand of am 800 year old crusader for luck. It made my son's day!
