I feel like i've been to so many different Churches all across Europe and the UK in the past few months but somehow they never cease to amaze me. Each church seems to have their own unique story and play their own parts in history....More

I hadn't been to St. Michan's for almost 30 years and the tour is still the same and still great. For some reason this is not on the popular tourist trail event though it is pretty much on the walk between Guinness and Jameson. There...More

This is an incredibly affordable must see in Dublin. It was once billed as shake hands with a mummy (you can no longer touch the mummies, though you are close enough to). Our kids loved it. And our guide was an amazing Irishman with a...More

A small church with little decor to enjoy but quite some history - and most importantly, a fantastic little tour into a couple of its crypts. The guide was simply brilliant.

While in Dublin do visit but check out the tour / opening times before hand. The tour is excellent and it’s a hidden gem. It is always a Brilliant experience. If your looking for something strange / different then this is ideal.

We went just to the church on our own and didn’t book ahead. You just show up during the posted block of times. The guide is great and the crypts are cool. They tucked away the vandalized mummy so now there is another there, you...More

And we saw mummified remains and skulls aplenty despite some of the tombs being closed. Perfect place to tuck into for a quick adventure. We took the Luas from the O’Connell Abby street station right to church. From there after the tour, we hopped in...More

Visited a few weeks ago and to echo others: mummies not on display and definitely no touching.

I think it was 3 or 4 Euros. Call them first to make sure they have a tour guide available because I waited 1-1/2 hrs. but he never showed up so I didn't get to see the crypt..
