The tour guide was just excellent! He really made the experience worthwhile. I heard one of the mummies was stolen lately. I hope the tours continue, as they are a real benefit to the city.

St. Michan's is an ancient church that has a fascinating history. We arrived just after the crypts closed but we got to walk to churchyard and see the sanctuary. Next time, we will arrive in time to see the vaults!

The interior of the church is fascinating and the crypts are amazing. If you are not sure footed a visit to the crypts might not be for you.

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.

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..
