  • Christ Church Cathedral Entrance Ticket & Self-Guided Tour

    7. Christ Church Cathedral Entrance Ticket & Self-Guided Tour

    Journey back in time by almost 1,000 years as you enter Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin. Built circa 1028, the sacred monument is perfectly located in the heart of the city's medieval center and features a beautiful interior and the largest crypt in Ireland. Constructed in the early 12th century, and the oldest structure still in use in Dublin today, the crypt is home to some fascinating memorials and curiosities. Look at the treasury, and see the mummified cat and rat. According to cathedral lore, the cat chased the rat into the pipe of an organ and both became stuck. They are mentioned by James Joyce in "Finnegans Wake" and are known locally - with typical Dublin wit - as "Tom and Jerry." Watch an audio visual presentation about the site. Follow in the footsteps of the pilgrims who beat a path to the church in the Middle Ages. Learn about the important collection of relics in the chu...

This trip was such a lovely experience with enjoying a piece of everything you want to see in Ireland. Our guide's name was Godfrey and he made it such an interesting trip with lot of information about Ireland's history and present and also made us laugh many times. Thanks to the great driver as well (I didn't catch his name)! We visited cute little village Glendalough with lovely nature and stunning views of mountains around, had short stop to look at the beauty of the Wicklow mountains and visited the centre of Kilkenny, which was a really nice city with lovely atmosphere. But most of all, I enjoyed the sheep dog demonstration. It was such an unique and beautiful experience. The farmer was super friendly and a great speaker, we learned a lot about the dogs and the sheep and also could cuddle with the dogs at the end, which just made this experience even more beautiful. Thank you for this lovely trip, I can't recommend enough!

I was looking for something to do around Dublin City of a Sunday Afternon and I came across this online and the experience was a lot of fun. I had my niece with me and we went on a tour of St Stephen's Green with our knowledge guide Ciarán. Then we done the the treasure hunt around St Stephens Green and it was fun but challenging so we asked people around the park to assist us and we finished the treasure hunt in just under 1 hour. We arrived back just as they were closing the little museum of Dublin and we handed our answer sheet in to the manager. As it turns out we got 100% and a certificate of achievement for our hard work.All in all a fun day out for big kids and little kids. Highly recommended.

We had wonderful experience with this tour. Our tour guide Jess are very informative and the driver Pavel keep us safe during our tours. It was worth and amazing experience.

It was a great ride. And a very good guide and bus driver.

Informative and extremely entertaining, well worth it.
