What an incredible place. Frozen in time. There’s not that much to it – one big, magnificent space, but it’s well worth a visit and well worth allowing enough time to pore over the exquisite detail. I didn’t take the free guided tour this time, but I think I’ll go back soon and do that….
Located in the heart of the medieval city of Dublin, Christ Church cathedral is one of the city’s finest buildings.
