No trip to Dublin is complete without a visit to the spectacular Christ Church Cathedral. As Dublin’s oldest building, Christ Church has been in existence for over 1,000 years and has remained an important place of pilgrimage even to this day. Its home to the famous 12th century crypt, and is renowned worldwide for its architecture, beauty and exquisite floor tiles.
The church has remained in consistent use since the Viking and Norse eras, and has played host to many events including the premiere of Handel’s ‘Messiah’ in 1742. Today it is still an important place of worship for those of the Anglican faith. All faiths and none are invited to attend worship at the church, and it’s become famed for its choral services.

Christ Church is also home the important Treasures of Christ Church which features manuscripts and ancient artefacts from the 12th Century. The Morgan is only a 15 minute walk to the cathedral so it’s an absolute must see if you’re planning on staying with us. For more info and to purchase tickets click here.
