A beautiful cathedral full of art, light and the Holy Spirit. Look out for the pastel-coloured wall mosaics and the floor tiles whose scrolling pattern is based on the Book of Kells.

This place is a a must for visitors to Armagh, along with St Patrick's COI cathedral. It is an amazing architectural structure ... beautiful inside and out. Words don't do it justice so make it top of your list on your visit to Armagh.

We happened to go to mass on First Communion Sunday. Seeing the little ones all cleaned up and expectant, was precious. Gift shop in the front of the church. Bathrooms in the back, outside entrance.

We came to Armagh for this, and happened to visit during a First Communion for the parish school. The crowds did not diminish the majesty of the cathedral. This is well preserved and kept despite its constant use by the community.

The location and exterior views of the Cathedral are amazing. Inside there is a feeling of peace, calm and serenity. The lofty and spacious, uncluttered interior with exquisite mosaic wall tiling make this probably the most beautiful Cathedral I have visited. Access is good, either...More
