Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin: 93 reviews and 169 photos


Christ Church Cathedral
Lord Edward St, Dublin 2
Founded in 1083 by the Danish Kind Sitric and Donatus, Bishop of Dublin. Demolished by the Normans in 1172 and rebuilt by them during the next fifty years. One of the main points of interest is the tomb of Stongbow, who conquered Dublin during the reign of Henry II. The monument depicts strongbow and his son, whom Strongbow is said to have killed for cowardice in battle. While King James II was in Dublin in 1689, the cathedral was seized, and for a brief period, the rites of the pre-Reformation faith were restored and Mass celebrated in the king's presence.
