Christ Church Cathedral Entrance Ticket & Self-Guided Tour

1. Christ Church Cathedral Entrance Ticket & Self-Guided Tour

Journey back in time by almost 1,000 years as you enter Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin. Built circa 1028, the sacred monument is perfectly located in the heart of the city's medieval center and features a beautiful interior and the largest crypt in Ireland. Constructed in the early 12th century, and the oldest structure still in use in Dublin today, the crypt is home to some fascinating memorials and curiosities. Look at the treasury, and see the mummified cat and rat. According to cathedral lore, the cat chased the rat into the pipe of an organ and both became stuck. They are mentioned by James Joyce in "Finnegans Wake" and are known locally - with typical Dublin wit - as "Tom and Jerry." Follow in the footsteps of the pilgrims who beat a path to the church in the Middle Ages. Learn about the important collection of relics in the church. Admire the stained glass windows and medieval floor tiles of the nave. 

Jewish History of Dublin: 3-Hour Walking Tour

2. Jewish History of Dublin: 3-Hour Walking Tour

The tour starts at Dublin's former main synagogue at 37 Adelaide Road, the heart of Jewish Dublin "Little Jerusalem". Have a quick coffee in the Kosher bakery before you visit points of interest. Discover the home of Ettie Steinberg, the only Irish victim of the Holocaust, the old Jewish Tailor's Union, Oakfield Place, and the location of a vicious string of murders in 1923. Your tour will finish at the Irish-Jewish Museum, as you explore the oldest synagogue left intact in Ireland and a wealth of stories about Ireland's old community and hear about a new thriving one.

Day Tour of Glendalough, Wicklow Mountains and Kilkenny

3. Day Tour of Glendalough, Wicklow Mountains and Kilkenny

The first stop on this guided tour is Glendalough, known as the valley of the two lakes, and its 6th-century monastic site of St. Kevin. The guide will walk you through the ancient monastery of St. Kevin and explain some of its important buildings, their folklore and history, before giving you plenty of time to explore the valley yourself. Then travel through the Wicklow Gap and see some of the most beautiful scenery of the area and a few small rural villages. Once the group reaches Kilkenny, you’ll have plenty of time to explore the medieval Norman town and its top sites, like St. Canice's Cathedral, Rothe House, and Kilkenny Castle. Kilkenny is steeped in history and was once the capital of Ireland. It was also the location for one of Ireland’s earliest witch trials, the famous story of Dame Alice Kyteler and her servant Petronilla. Spend 3 hours in Kilkenny, explore Kilkenny Castle and have some lunch.

Very impressive monument. The exhibition in the basement is particularly interesting. The German-language flyer gives a small but helpful overview of the entire church. However, special features are recognized with the flyer.
