St. Patrick's Cathedral

Beautiful church! The grounds are gorgeous. Someone was playing the pipe organ and the choir was singing - wonderful! Worth a visit off the bus.

Charming place where you can trace the history, that sad and that glorious, of Ireland. Beautiful park outside. Good concierge service.

Came from an excellent tour Christ Church Cathedral to St. Patricks for the evensong service and a walkaround. Service was a quiet way to end the day. We didn't tour the cathedral but did walk around a bit. Large number attended the service including some tour groups. We would do it again.

Surprisingly more interesting and entertaining than I thought. A fine mixture of interactive and more traditional displays. Historical and more modern, so to speak. And central, so short to a Coffee breake afterwards. Nice. I really enjoyed this.

This beautiful building was completed in the 1100's and is part of the Church of Ireland. The interiors are beautiful and the small fee to enter is well worth it. It is always worth visiting such old buildings and be in awe of how they have held up for hundreds of years.

My girlfriend and I went here on a beautiful summer day, before we headed into the city for the literary pub crawl. The cathedral is truly amazing. Especially the appreciation of the military left a lasting impression on us. In addition it is highly educating it's visitor on both the history of the cathedral, the Irish people and especially John... More
