Does a 600 year old, 6 foot, 6 inch crusader mummy sound interesting to you? Well this is the place to see one?! On first appearances, I was skeptical of the interest of this church but I’m glad I forked out the €7 for the tour of the crypts below. The mummies are fascinating but so is the guide - the driest, slowest and most animated sense of humour that left some of the non-English speaking tour members scratching their head but entertaining all the same
This is an ancient site at one stage it was catholic but for 300 years has been Church of Ireland (protestant) It is very interesting, the age of the building it self and there are Vaults that have preserved bodies, mummified them. Some of the preserved bodies are hundreds of years old, such as a 400 year old nun. The church is open to all faiths to visit. The church and vaults are open to tours on Saturdays. An interesting place to visit in Dublin
This place was the best place I visited in Dublin! It wasn’t swarming with tourists and our tour guide was brilliant! Super animated and informative, a real hard case. The crypts themselves were really interesting but it really was the guide that made the trip. Definitely add this place to your itinerary!
Very cool little church with a quick tour of the crypts below. Highly recommend!
This is one of the most memorable tours we had while visiting Dublin. Such history & an amazing, yet somewhat bizarre natural occurrence can be seen in this fascinating little church.
