School Tours

Christ Church Cathedral is one of Ireland’s most historic buildings and the perfect place to visit on your school tour.

Students of all ages will be fascinated by the cathedral, which was originally a Viking church and is almost 1,000 years old. It is a great place to learn about the Vikings, the Normans and Medieval life.

They will love discovering the crypt, which is Dublin city’s oldest working structure, as well as uncovering hidden treasures throughout the cathedral, such as Strongbow’s final resting place, the heart of Dublin’s patron saint Laurence O’Toole and our famous mummified cat and rat.

Students can also enjoy our new dress up area where they can try on costumes inspired by the cathedral’s history.

Come and join us for your school tour to see history brought to life.
