Great building steeped in history with beautiful grounds. Walk round and discover the walled garden with fruit trees, roses and herbs. Well worth a visit.

I was puzzled by the building. You ascend sloping plaza up a hill, past the Market Place Theatre to reach the front of the church. You meet locked doors. Happily, I had free time and circled the building to find I could enter around the...More

This church was built on the sight of St. Patrick's original church which replaced pagan structures of some type. There are several very ancient stone carvings, one in the church itself and several more in the basement. It is the oldest of the two cathedrals...More

It is beautiful and it was exciting to be standing where St. Patrick himself stood when he started the first church.

St. Patrick's Cathedral is the largest and tallest cathedrals in Ireland. Absolutely stunning Gothic architecture.
