Pretty impressive and full of history. The visit there is a must if you are interested in learning more about St. Patrick and Irish history. The place is full of history; some episodes are explained in short clips diplayed on a TV. Guided tours are also availabe.

Not the biggest or grandest cathedral in Europe, but certainly worth a look if you are in Dublin and like a bit of history. Rebuilt in gothic style this cathedral is on the site St Patrick first practiced baptism when he came to Ireland. For a small entrance fee (6 Euro) you'll get to roam freely and take some shots...

Beautiful inside and out. The tours are amazing so dont skip out! Tour guides are very knowledgable. The gardens are wonderful. Great place to sit outside the cathedral, rest your legs and get some great pictures.

We were visiting Dublin and took the Hop on Hop off bus tour. Hopped off to visit St. Patrick's. There is a small fee to enter but worth it. The stained glass windows were spectacular and the history of the cathedral was very interesting.

price ok for entry seeing as your paying towards the conservation cost. could do with a bit more literature to explain what and where the artifacts are. tour guides need to talk a little louder.

The Kirk was never-ending! Following a pint, we entered the cathedral. The stained glass windows were endless and perfectly crafted. One could enter the church every week, and yet continue to explore new finds everywhere.

When it comes to Cathedrals this has to be one of the most beautiful ones we saw. There are several to see in Ireland put this on the top of your list.
