Tour the Aviva and look inside the country's cathedrals with new updated Google Street View

Clare Cullen

Google Street view has just been updated with a new collection of imagery from across the country.

Iconic locations including Christchurch Cathedral, the megalithic burial grounds of Loughcrew and the beautiful National Botanic Gardens in Kilmacurragh can now be accessed "right from your phone".

Rugby fans can tour the Aviva Stadium on Street view ahead of the 6 nations, while those interested in sight-seeing can see inside the most iconic cathedrals across the country.

The images were taken in the summer of 2014 using the Google Trekker – a four-foot, 40lbs backpack, fitted with a 15-angle lens camera, taking 360 degree pictures every 2.5 seconds – which is designed to capture imagery in locations that the Street View car can’t typically reach.

Google Street View can be accessed on desktop and on the Google Maps app for iOS and Android.

“We are very excited to showcase our iconic and much loved landmark on Google’s Street View and invite a wider audience to come and see for themselves one of Ireland’s most spectacularly beautiful cathedrals with one of the oldest and largest crypts in Europe.” said Nuala Kavanagh, Director of Operations at Christ Church Cathedral.
