If you are a Tudors T.V. show fan, this is a must see. One of the scenes from the TV show was filmed in the room where there are several outfits on display that were worn in the show. The church is beautiful, although there...More

Christ Church Cathedral is located in the former heart of medieval Dublin, the high point for me was another heart , that of Saint Laurence O'Toole , someone stole his heart and now it back again .

This is a building steeped in history. Take the guided tour as it takes you to places you would otherwise have missed. Our guide was a true professional, assessing and including his audience. We even got to ring the bells!More

A beautiful cathedral, it has a warmth and friendliness that feels really special. There’s a lovely combination of the history and past alongside current worship and community. I loved it, and the treasures in the crypt shouldn’t be missed!More

This is a great piece of architecture. While we were there, the choir was rehearsing and it added extra value to our visit. The only thing I regret is that we didn't take an audio guide. I think we would have gotten a lot more...More
