If your into your Irish/English history this is a good spot to see. One of the many churches in dublin thats steeped in Irish history. A top tourist Attraction, that most dubliners dont frequent but thats the norm for the locals. Well worth a visit

I'm not sure about guided tours but I do think there is an audio tour. We walked it on our own. There's a lot of cool history to read but we only had about 1.5 hours.
