Owner description: A magnificent cathedral that houses Jonathan Swift's remains (he wrote Gulliver's Travels). It is the only remaining cathedral in Ireland with a daily sung services. A small entrance fee is charged for tourists and all money raised goes back to paying for the upkeep of the building.

The place is really beautiful but in my opinion don't worth pay to see inside. The garden of church is beautiful enough. In dublin you can visit other church, free, which is beautiful like st patricks.

The experience was amazing. This is one of the most important places to visit. I loved the time spent here and some great things to pick up from the shop there.

This cathedral has a pretty impressive exterior and is very picturesque on the inside, with the beautiful stained glass windows, mosaic floor tiles, high ceilings, flags, banners and sculptures. I felt a bit underwhelmed though, guess I had too high expectations. Photographing is allowed throughout the cathedral and there's also a gift shop where you can buy some reasonably priced souvenirs. The admission fee is 5,50 euros per person, but well worth it!

This place is huge! And the stained glass is worth twice the entrance fee. Simply an amazing structure with centuries of well preserved history.
