Really enjoyed the self- guided tour of Christ Church Cathedral. See the sarcophagus of Strongbow here. This is right next to Dublinia - so make sure you do both tours since they are conveniently located next to each other!

Underground crypt is so extensive - largest I've ever seen. Guide is well documented and most interesting.

Response from Christ Church C | Property representative |
Hi, The guided tour takes approximately 45 minutes, which includes a visit to the belfry to ring the cathedral bells.
Do you have to go on a guided tour to see the Belfry and crypt or can anyone with general admission go in?

Hi Michelle, Thanks for your query. The cathedral, crypt and treasury are all included in the general admission to the cathedral. However, the belfry can only be accessed by going on a guided tour, for health and safety... More
I tried to buy admission tickets on their website, but it would not allow me. Anyone else having the same problem?

Hi. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We'll try to get it fixed as soon as possible. You can buy all of our tickets at the welcome desk, and at this time of year you shouldn't encounter a very long queue. Ruairi
