One of the less-travelled, must-see Dublin artifacts. Surprisingly under-visited. The oldest Dublin parish north of the Liffey, with a crypt you may visit with a guide. The church itself is exquisite.

It is interesting but overrated The chirch is absolutely simple there is no decoration inside nor outside. The interesting part is under the chirch. The tourguide is a funny man who shows and explains the history of the burying in the cript. There are two...More

I've visited St Michan's many times over the years, each time getting something new from the visit. If you love history and mummies, then St Michan's is the place to go. The crypt under the church is incredible and unlike anything you may have seen...More

This old church, over 900 years old, is best known for crypts with mummies. Perhaps less visited than St Patrick's cathedral and much smaller. Inside church one end is an organ, the other stained glass windows. Small church. For 7€ (5€ for seniors) you have...More

It is just a tiny church however you get to go down into the crypt and see the mummies. It was an awesome tour. The Hop on Hop off sometimes stops at the church. The Big Bus does drive by it on the Blue Line.

A great, little crypt tour with a fun, enigmatic guide. You go from the calmness of a church setting to literally stepping down into a tight, dark, creepy hole in the ground (I went first...). You visit two separate crypts. The bodies and rooms are...More

This modest church is home to incredible crypts. The mummified bodies were shocking even when you are expecting them! The guide was entertaining and accommodating.

Super guide answered all questions and entertained. Provided insight and speculation on how the mummies came to be and why they are displayed. Clearly respected the grounds which made the whole visit seem less ghoulish.

I showed up and was told to look around in the church a bit before the tour started. Then the tour guide came and took me into the crypt where the tour was already going. When he was finished with that part of the crypt,...More

Visited a few weeks ago and to echo others: mummies not on display and definitely no touching.

I think it was 3 or 4 Euros. Call them first to make sure they have a tour guide available because I waited 1-1/2 hrs. but he never showed up so I didn't get to see the crypt..
