Overview
More
Christ Church Cathedral is one of Dublin's oldest buildings, a leading visitor attraction and a place of pilgrimage for almost 1,000 years. Famous for its breathtaking beauty, magnificent architectural features and wonderful floor tiles, Christ Church is also popular as a venue and is host to many high profile concerts throughout the year. It is home to the tomb of Strongbow, leader of the Normans, who captured Dublin in 1170. The Medieval Crypt, one of the largest in Britain and Ireland, extends under the entire Cathedral and contains The Mummified cat and rat, trapped in the organ in the 1860s. Guided tours, including the belfry, available up to five times a day Monday to Saturday.

Christ's Church stands at the heart of Dublin. Originally built by the Vikings, it's been through numerous structural and religious overhauls while maintaining parts of its original structure, paintings, furniture, and crypts. They've done a good job of adding signage and explanations to what you...More

Don't miss the lovely Icons. Once you finish the self guided tour on the main floor, don't forget to go downstairs to the Treasury. The gift shop is also on that level.

This church is most impressive from outside. Once inside it's a pretty medieval church, but it's not the prettiest I've seen. Unfortunately, we couldn't take a guided tour, so maybe that would have been better, but we did use the handout given at the front...More

If you don't go anywhere else, go here. This place contains such history and artifacts. There is guided tours, which I suggest as there is so much you might miss something.

You could do this spot in 30 mins or up to 1 hr. A lot of history here. We walked through in less than 30 mins. Got our pics and moved along. Worth a short stop here.
