Admission Tickets

We look forward to welcoming you to Christ Church Cathedral, the spiritual heart of Dublin.

Located in the heart of Dublin city centre, Christ Church was originally a Viking church and has been welcoming pilgrims and visitors for almost 1,000 years. 

This working Anglican cathedral is an architectural masterpiece, evident from the moment you enter the magnificent nave with its vaulted ceilings and medieval tiled floor.

Dig a little deeper to find the crypt, the city’s oldest working structure, or climb higher into our belfry and discover our world-famous bells.

Hidden treasures are waiting to be discovered around every corner: Strongbow’s final resting place, the heart of St. Laurence O’Toole, a rare copy of the Magna Carta and our famous mummified cat and rat.

Come on a journey of discovery in the spiritual heart of Dublin city centre.
