My second visit but the best yet. Such a beautiful building full of atmosphere and history. Visitors can't fail but to be impressed. Managed to buy my sister a rosary as well so great day.

This was a beautiful experience! I have been here twice and both times were amazing! One can feel the history among them and the floors to this cathedral are just plain beautiful! The statues inside are also amazing! You need to visit!

Having previously only visited as a historic building when I was young, it was good to visit while it was carrying out its primary function as a place if worship. Whilst places like this depend on...

We visited this late morning and managed to join a free 30 minute tour which was just starting. The tour was very interesting and the guide was knowledgeable but also entertaining. The cathedral was beautiful and very well kept, especially the Lady Chapel area. Well worth a visit.

The gardens surrounding the cathedral are quite lovely and a pleasant place to sit and rest if you have had a busy day exploring Dublin. You have to pay to go into the cathedral - 6 Euros/adult and 5 Euros for Seniors and students. However, that price includes a free guided tour which is well worth the taking since it... More

Again visited via city tour bus - a bit of culture/history away from the shops, pubs and restaurants

Most churches throughout all off europe are free admission, or donation if you feel inclined. This one you have to pay for admission. and quite honestly it was one of the least impressive cathedrals I've seen. so not that great, and had to pay. not good. Save the money, take pictures outside from the park next to it, still go... More

I actually hadn't planned on coming here but as I was waiting for a Whiskey distillery tour and had some time the staff at the distillery recommended to see the cathedral. It was absolutely fantastic! The architecture is beautiful and the exhibits are great. There are also some interactive things to do for the kids, so definitely good for families... More

Very beautiful artistry, but it is a very dark cathedral inside. Be sure to check the times it is open so you are able to get in and take your time to look at everything.
