Christ Church Cathedral

Christ Church Cathedral (founded c.1028) is the spiritual heart of the city, and one of the top visitor attractions in Dublin. Step inside and you can enjoy the cathedral’s beautiful interior and fascinating medieval crypt. The crypt is one of the oldest in Britain & Ireland and as a pilgrimage site in medieval times has an important collection of relics ranging from a miraculous speaking cross to a piece from the crib of Jesus. A mummified cat & rat are the most unusual inhabitants of the crypt, but also the most popular.
