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

The one thing I did not like was low lighting which cause problems taking pictures and they did not tell you that you could save money by going to Dublinia first and bought as a joined ticket.More

This cathedral is a definite must-see when visiting Dublin. I found the cathedral to have a very intimate and serene quality. It is not a large cathedral and it has a extensive crypt with an array of objects (including the mummified remains of a cat...More

What an impressive building with loads of atmosphere. The Crypt is gob-smackingly special. The treasures are imaginatively presented amply using the many alcoves to maximise the effect. Visiting Rock Choir from East Anglia UK showed off a wonderful Cathedral acoustic. Good value.More

Beautiful Cathedral with fabulous history. From Strongbow being buried here to the return of Lawence’s heart. The crypt is hauntingly beautiful displaying historical artifacts including silverware. Tours are definitely fabulous which included the belltower. Highly recommended.
