About this experience

Religion played a key role in the separation of Northern Ireland from the Republic of Ireland and remains an important part of Irish identity. Join our History Guide on the streets of Dublin to see the most important churches and cathedrals and learn about the historical background of political and religious conflicts in Ireland. Enjoy a theme tour tailored to your needs and interests.

Book a 2-hour tour to explore Dublin’s historic city center and visit 2 churches. Your walking tour will begin outside the Christ Church Cathedral,which is one of the 2 medieval cathedrals in town. Admire its beautiful Gothic-Romanesque facade and learn about the most important events in its over 1,000 years history. Next, you will head to St. Audeon’s Church, which is the oldest parish church in Dublin. A visit inside will transfer you back in time to the Middle Ages, and you will discover the role that the church played in the Irish Confederate Wars.

Another highlight will be St. Patrick's Cathedral, the national cathedral of Ireland. Wander around the adjacent St. Patrick’s Park and hear the story of the baptism of the first Catholics in Ireland by St. Patrick. The guide will also take you to a lesser known church on Whitefriar Street. Inside this beautiful 19th century building by George Papworth you will find relics of Saint Valentine and Saint Albert. The tour will end outside the Chapel Royal, which is part of the Dublin Castle complex.

Choose the 2,5-hour tour to enrich your experience with a visit inside the Christ Church Cathedral. Skip–the-line tickets are included to avoid waiting in line. Enjoy the cathedral’s architectural splendor and spiritual atmosphere, and discover its various monuments and historical features such as the oldest known secular carvings in Ireland, the heart of Lorcán Ua Tuathail, and the mummified cat and the rat in the crypt.

Choose the 3-hour tour to also visit the magnificent St. Patrick’s Cathedral with skip-the-line tickets. It’s a treasure trove of Irish history and culture with numerous monuments, memorials and chivalric chapels. Admire the richly decorated interiors of the cathedral, hear the story of the Door of Reconciliation, and learn the church’s contribution to Irish life. It's a must-see in Dublin!
