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

I was able to visit this gorgeous cathedral during my stay in Dublin. It's well worth the time. The tour guide gave us a great history on the building. The cathedral was used in the filming of The Tudors. You can also see the tomb...More

The history surrounding this building is impressive, although the interior is not as stunning as St Patrick's it offers it's own character. Mixed feelings about paying an entry fee to a church we did so anyway. A relatively quick tour, but a nice add on...More

The cathedral is close to walk to when touring the south side (St. Patrick's is further away) but also has entrance fees which I think is inappropriate for visiting a church - at least you also get to see a very interesting exhibit in the...More

Christ Church is beautiful to walk around. There are pamphlets available in many languages after you pay admission- you don’t need an audiotour or booklet for 6 euros unless you really want an in depth tour. We put one euro in the collection box for...More
