Christ Church Dublin, is the oldest building in Medieval Dublin dating back to 1030 AD. It was founded by King Sitriuc, Norse king of Dublin and was incorporated into the Irish church 1152. Christ Church Cathedral is located in the former heart of medieval Dublin. However a major dual carriage-way building scheme around it separated it from the original medieval street pattern which once surrounded it, with its original architectural context lost due to road-building and the demolition of the older residential quarter at Wood Quay. It is the main attraction of medieval Dublin and is ideally located near St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Christ Church Place beside Dame Street.
The church opens 7 days per week and admission starts at a small fee of €2. Christ Church is the centre of worship for the united dioceses and holds notable annual events. As the cathedral of the southern province of the Church of Ireland it also hosts ordinations of priests and consecrations of bishops.
Clayton Hotel Leopardstown is located just 20 minutes from the city centre and the church can be easily accessed by using the Luas tram line. Book your accommodation now by clicking here.
