Church
“Christ Church Cathedral is the official seat of both the Church of Ireland and the Catholic Church in Ireland. The original cathedral was a wooden church built shortly after the Viking King Sitric Silkenbeard made a pilgrimage to Rome in 1028. Rebuilt in stone and expanded over the next few centuries, the Cathedral has been a fixture in the city of Dublin for nearly a millennium. The oldest remaining section of the cathedral is the underground crypts, which dates to the 1170s -- take a tour and learn about Christ Church's pet cat and rat! Admission is €7 for adults, €5.50 for students and seniors.”
