Christ Church Cathedral Dublin

Christ Church Cathedral Dublin was first built around 1030 A.D, but the cathedral has gone through many changes over the centuries.  I felt blessed to have been able to visit the cathedral in November 2014 soon after visiting Saint Patrick’s Cathedral.    The cathedral is located in the heart of medieval Dublin and Dunan was the first bishop.  The main nave of the church collapsed in the 13th century and has since been rebuilt.  The cathedral is is famous for its bells and I was able to receive a private tour of the tower that houses the bells.  Enjoy the photos below.
