Stop At: Christ Church Cathedral, Christchurch Pl, Wood Quay, Dublin 8, Co. Dublin, Ireland

Visting the outside only.
Christ Church Cathedral or/and St Patrick’s Cathedral
Although a wooden church was built here in ca. 1030, and there was likely a pagan shrine before that, Christchurch as a stone structure began in the 1180s and has been restored and changed numerous times since. The neo-gothic architecture makes Christchurch, arguably, Dublin’s most beautiful complex. The vast crypt underneath the cathedral deserves particular attention for its size, interesting curious and the fact that it hosted a pub, distillery and… brothel (!) in the 18th century.
