St. Michan's Church, Dublin-Guided tours lead visitors into a stone tunnel lined with burial chambers, where some of the dusty corpses can be admired in their open coffins. Among these are a nun, a man missing a hand and both feet, and a Crusader who had to be sawn in half to fit into the coffin. Legend has it that Bram Stoker's Dracula was inspired in part by the author's childhood visits to this macabre vault.

St Michan's Church - One of the top visits we all had, thanks to a Michael Palin-ish tour guide (with a touch of Hitchcock).  St. Michan's has catacombs underneath the church, where you can see the mummified remains of 4 individuals, including a crusader.  There are other bits of history, including the remains of brothers from the 1798 rebellion (and their execution orders) and a gorgeous organ that Handel may have played early performances of The Messiah.
