We had just landed in Dublin and were looking for things to do while waiting to check into our hotel. I had heard about the St. Michan Mummies and thought it would be interesting. The host who showed us around was passionate and knowledgeable about...More

Most people go to see the mummies, but the stories are interesting too. Once a family owns a crypt, it's theirs forever. There was one vault that had an urn placed in it just a few years back to join family from 400 years back....More

Went here whilst waiting for lunch to start at the Brazen Head after they recommended checking it out. Quite a cool and quirky tour of the crypt with naturally formed mummies. Tour guide was hilarious and gave some fascinating history of Dublin.

The site is smaller would take 5 minutes to walk through the church and backyard. The tour guide is funny and very knowledgeable of the history of these creeps. The tour itself takes 15 minutes. 6 euros per person.

The church itself is lovely. The glass window, the organ, the WW! honor roll, praying pillows...... But we came to see the catacombs. Our guide, a lovely Irish chap, was delightful. Amazing stories and beautiful adornments on some of the coffins. I wished the mummy...More

St. Michan's is definitely worth a visit. The quick tour allows you to see the crypts below the church, as well as a number of mummified bodies. A great atmospheric exhibit, and quite creepy.

St. Michan's will take you into their crypts. It is a small tour, a little creepy, good stories, but interesting and a good stop. The tour is fairly short, depending on the number of people. I was able to just stop in no per-ticket purchase...More

It was 3 or 4 Euros this year. Call ahead to make sure they'll have a tour guide available when you wish to go or you won't get to see the crypt.
