Simple church but the exterior is awesome. Has a garden at the side. Good for photography during spring and summer. Didn't like the idea of an admission fee, hence I did not go in.

We stayed in The Palace Hotel in Zandvoort The Netherlands and the staff were very helpful and courteous and the facilities were excellent. Would recommend it to fellow travellers.

6 Euro gains you entrance to Saint Patrick's Cathedral. If you enjoy history and cathedrals, definitely worth the trip. Absolutely beautiful! And they even have an interactive space where you can try a brass rubbing.

We started our Dublin trip here and were so glad we did. Saint Patrick's is a lovely place, quiet and reverent-- even if you aren't into churches, you should come here to experience the peace.

I personally feel like you can't visit Dublin without seeing Saint Patrick's Cathedral. Is it similar to many other cathedrals throughout Ireland, for sure, but it's still worth the visit. Beautiful stained glass on the inside. The architecture is something to see!
