Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin

The Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity is one of the oldest buildings of Ireland and has been a place of pilgrimage for almost 1000 years.

Perfectly located in the heart of medieval Dublin, it was founded in the year 1030. One of the city’s finest historical buildings, Christ Church is one of the two protestant churches in Dublin (the other one being St Patrick’s Cathedral, just to the south). Originally the site of the vikings cathedral, the present structure was started around the year 1172 after the conquest of Dublin by Strongbow, a norman baron. Renowned for its beauty, architecture and exquisite floor tiles, this church is also home to the 12th century atmospheric crypt, the oldest surviving structure of the city. 

Christ Church Cathedral is one of the leading attractions of Dublin.
