Had seen exterior on a walking tour of Dublin, but next day with personal guide went inside and it was awesome to see and feel and our guide, Kieran, was very knowledgeable so we learned a lot and got much more out of this experience than if on our own.

Beautiful cathedral. Wasn't our favorite place on our trip but we were glad that we went. This would be great for a rainy day in Dublin.

This was our favorite cathedral we visited in Dublin! It was just around the corner from our hotel so it was very easy for us to walk there, but it would've been worth a farther trip too. It was gorgeous inside with so much to look at and read about, as well as a nice flower garden and fountain to... More

I was in Dublin on a bright sunny day and spent some time in the adjacent park before attending the 5:30 service (I think). It was just what was needed after racing though so many sights that day in the town center. The park was gorgeous, completely in bloom, and I shared it with a reasonable number of people, both...

We didn't tour the cathedral, but enjoyed walking around the grounds and admiring the architecture. It was a beautiful sunny day and lots of people were lying, sitting, and picnicing on the lawn.

A must if you're in Dublin. There are various St. Patrick's Cathedrals around the world, personally my favourite one is the one in New York, but this one is the original one. Don't miss it. Take a few minutes to walk around it. I don't recommend the audio tour. Go behind the altar, sense the peacefulness. Play in the kids... More

I visited here some time ago and it was a highlight of the trip to Dublin. I'd recommend visiting with a tour group / guide as it's difficult to appreciate the full history through just browsing through the materials/brochures on site. Overall, magnificent!

We made it in close to the end of the day but it was still worth the price of admission to see this grand church. There are kid activities over in one corner with rubbing plates and interactive screens. The gift shop is a set of carts and stands that are closed up and put away before the church closes... More

Beautiful cathedral! A wonderful choir was performing during our visit. Quiet place to pause for some reflection in a busy city
