Located near city centre, but still in the center of things, surrounded by small and sweet park, Saint Patrick's Cathedral is one of the most beautiful Irish cathedrals. Atmosphere is wonderful and even better at Sundays when mass is going on. Wonderful place, ticket affordable, on Sundays free of charge.

This Cathedral is wonderful, you could go in a sunday after a mass so its free of charge, but if you go another day it's worth the price. You can stay as long as you want not just only admiring the great architecture, but reading and learning the history of this character. You will love how imponent this place is.

Beautiful church with a great history behind it. I took a self guided tour of the Cathedral. They have a little paper that outlines a little path for you to take and items of interest. One interesting thing. Jonathan Swift, the author of Gulliver's travel, was a dean here and was interred here. Beautiful architecture and equally magnificent stained glass all around. And yes, they have a gift shop. You must realize they are not state supported and thus all you entrance fee and anything the gift shop makes goes to supporting this magnificent piece of history. If I recall our walking tour guide he said that it was originally a Catholic church before becoming an Anglican Church. Visit also Christ Church Cathedral, which is often compared to St. Patrick. Both are equally impressive. But St. Patty's is more well known. Also one more thing. There are more artifacts at St. Patrick's than at Christ Church. Don't forget to see the Boyle family Monument. The famous member is Sir Robert Boyle who discovered Boyle's law of gases. Remember your chemistry?😄

A lovely place to visit when the rains bickering down in Dublin - escape in to St Patrick’s cathedral and get lost in its history. On the day we visited we were lucky to have arrived when an organ recital was taking place - there were only a handful of tourists in the building so it was a super experience. Take time to learn about the links to St Patrick, Swift etc and the origin of the phrase ‘to chance your arm’! Tip : to make the best of and to time your visit visit their website before you go - for tickets plus information on what’s taking place in the cathedral daily.
