With its rich, religious history, it’s unsurprising that the Irish capital is home to some fine churches. Walking tours are also becoming a popular way for visitors to experience the city’s impressive religious architecture.

Of Dublin’s veritable array of churches, the most famous and thus most visited are the landmarks of Christchurch Cathedral and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The former, just a 10-minute stroll from the renowned Trinity College, holds the title of Dublin’s oldest building dating back to the 11th century. Its standing as the central church for the British empire (King Edward VI was crowned here) meant it was once a site of pilgrimage during the medieval period, when it was purported to contain a piece from the crib of Jesus.
