I didn't do my research and expected St. Patrick's Cathedral to sill be a catholic church.

I would recommend going to a smaller, local Catholic church if that's what you're looking for.

Home to burial sites of some of the greatest leaders in Dublin Ireland history including Sir Arthur Guinness St. Patrick's Cathedral is beautiful and awe inspiring. Highly recommend that you visit the original especially if you have visited St. Patrick's Cathedral in NY. a must see and a short walk as Dublin is a very easy walking city.

After spending a week in Scotland and a week in Ireland, this cathedral would definitely be in the top 5 and we saw multiple cathedrals and castles, etc. Prepare to take lots of pics. The grounds are beautiful.

I took the tour, which was very informative. The shop had lovely gifts & there was also a restroom. It was a good place to visit on Veteran's/Remembrance Day
