Oh my, where do I start? We just came upon this amazing church and had to go inside. What a surprise to see and hear that the children were rehearsing for their First Holy Communion. The sound in the cavernous space was spellbinding. The voices...More

We were there in Easter,say no more😊 we just rocked up and were given a royal tour of the church which was included great commentary in detail about the church’s history. (Maybe it was our lucky day)

We enjoyed touring around the cathedral and the grounds where several famous people were buried. The church was beautiful and clean with astounding views from the steps across the city of Armagh. Would definitely visit again if in the area.

We spent nearly an hour at this Cathedral. It was such a special time. Very clean inside and very spiritual. Catholics should make a point of visiting

First time that I have visited this Cathedral. There was no one else around so it lacked buzz/hype. After being in several Cathedrals in Rome it is hard to compare. But I have now seen it, I wont be rushing back.
