Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    When I think about Dublin the first think that come to my mind is the Christ Church Chatedral. One of the most photogenich building that you can find in Dublin. From outside the church is impressive, the interior is also noticeable and worth to visit. You'll receive an audioguide for a brief selftour for free. It's less crowded then St. Patrick Chatedral which made my visit super enjoyable.

    Our first viewing of actual mummies! Due to the limestone, methane gas, and other unique features of this church, human bodies buried underneath it do not compose. They are in mummy form in crypts owned by wealthy families over centuries. We were turned onto this church by Tom, whom we met at Christschurch Cathedral (which also has crypts but no mummies). Tom is a guide at both locations.
    It is only 35-minutes. There is no restroom there so be prepared. Also, it is cash only.
    Bram Stoker’s family were parishioners here and he was inspired to write Dracula here.

    Busy: there are FIVE daily (Mon-Sat) Masses.
    Old: founded in 1972, they have quite a history.
    Beautiful: great stained glass, interesting sculptures, inside and outside, very different "Stations of the Cross," among other features.

    I really liked this church. We went to a 3 PM weekday mass and walked around afterwards. There is a massive organ up in the front. And, there are many, many shrines (all listed on their website). There are a number of interesting side altars. Perhaps, the most famous and most visited is the altar to St. Vincent, for which there are some relics.

    The Roman Catholic Church of St. Augustine and St. John, more commonly known as John Lane's Church, is one of Dublin's most beautiful churches. It's centrally located in the city and it's beautiful exterior gives a hint of the equally beautiful interior. Inside you will find wonderful stained glass, carvings, and stonework that are impressive. It is very much a Roman Catholic Church in all its glory and grand decor. This church is a must-see when in Dublin.

    Visit whilst the choir is performing for an extra bonus. This was an excellent opportunity to compare side by side the different centuries old walls that exist in the same building. This is not a Catholic Church anymore.

    If you are in central Dublin this church is worth visiting. It opens onto St Stephen's Green. It is free to enter and relatively small but attractive.

    Came across St Ann’s as I was in the city centre shopping. Did not go inside but was taken by the beauty on the outside and the striking red door.

    Fun family day trip, great scenery of Dublin ( we did get clear blue skies which helped!) and the Hellfire house at the top was really interesting. The hike itself isn’t too difficult at all. For younger kids, I’d take a buggy. FYI there’s a Coffee stand in the car park but we didn’t notice toilets there

    Aka Findlater's Church. This impressive Gothic styled structure, is located on the north corner of Parnell Square. It was built in 1864 and its spire is towering 50 meters above the square. Beautiful.

    A beautiful Christmas service. The priest was so kind and welcoming to all. He made a special day even more special with his homily.

    We went by to see this Church because my fiance and my (we are distant cousins) 6th greatgrandparents were married there on 1st May, 1736. So for us it was rather magical to be there where they were 250 years ago. It was Sunday but in the afternoon and the gates were closed but we got to see the outside and take pics. It is a beautiful old building. It is in a great place to walk (roll in my wheelchair) around Dublin with lots of nice shops, pubs, and such around that road.

    This Unitarian church was designed by W.H.Lynn for an architectural competition in 1863 which he won. The design is intended to bring as much light into the interior of a constricted site. The stained glass is by three of the best artists of the time: O'Brien, Rhind and Child (christ between Columbus, Luther, Caxton and Florence Nightingale).
    The main body of the church is raised above street level, with a single aisle and a trancept. i was there for a funeral.
    Visit whenever it is open!
