Owner description: Underneath the church are five long burial vaults containing the mummified remains of many of Dublin's most influential 17th, 18th and 19th century families, including the legendary Shears brothers and the highly decorated coffins of the Earl's of Leitrim. Since Victorian times visitors have descended the vault steps to see the mummies and Bram Stoker, creator of the "Dracula" stories is believed to have visited the vaults in the company of his family. In one vault can be seen the remains of the "Crusader" though in fact he is only 650 years dead. The early visitors to the vaults were responsible for many of the myths and legends surrounding the bodies, though modern scientific investigations have cast doubts on many of these stories. Nevertheless, a visit to the Crypts to see the historic mummies is a remarkable experience.

Today, I went to St Michan's church with my classmates and my teacher... The church is really interestinging and attractive: The mummies! If you want do anything different in Dublin, you must visit this church and the catacombs... you'll love it. Many bodies (mummies), much history, old things, a crazy guide and great moments... Send you friends and family and go on the excursion. In my opinion, you'll love it. Go ahead and enjoy it.

I visited this church and I enjoyed a lot. If you go there, you can see the mummified bodies (very old).
This Church is very good to learning about the Irish history and the guide was very funny.
Very interesting place to visit.

It is cooky, quirky and absolutely authentic! It might be creepy for children but well worth the visit. It is inexpensive and as everyone else is saying, it is en route to and from the Jameson Distillery so most definitely worth stopping off for 30 minutes. We did this in a day of other tours and this tour was the most talked about!
