What people are saying:

Wow! Just incredible. Where else will you have the chance to see 800 year-old mummies perfectly preserved in a crypt? The church is nice as well, less elaborate than something like St. Patrick's, but worth taking a peek inside. Had a wonderful tour guide and really nice staff. Tickets are not too expensive and there is a student discount!

    Really interesting

    We loved St. Michan's Church. Even though you can not longer touch the mummies I would still recommend going and learning all the history behind it. Board lines on the macabre due to the mummies but i...

    Bones, atmosphere, bodies.

    Certainly macabre for the curious. Very interesting. The musty smells down in the crypts stay with you for a while afterwards. Well worth a visit if you don’t mind bones, the dark, bodies. Good tour g...

Additional Information

Introduction

Though not as large or impressive as the Christ Church or the St. Patrick's Cathedral, St. Michan's has a certain appeal for those interested in history - and in mummies. The church's main attraction is its underground vault, which contain the mummified remains of a nun, a 6.5-foot-tall man (cut in half so he could fit in the coffin), and the Sheare Brothers, executed by the British after participating in the uprising of 1798. Michan's is one of the oldest churches in the city and contains the organ on which Handel is believed to have composed his Messiah. It was constructed on the site of an 11th-century Danish Chapel, and its interior contains fine woodwork.
