“Well worth a look”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

I'm not that much into churches but this is worth visiting. The architecture is amazing and it looks like a movie set. Having said that the atmosphere is still sombre and reverent inside. Great piece of history.

“Gothic , and old”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

It's really cold in there . very gothic design and has a sense of not right feeling. If you kneel at the pues to pray your glared at by some regular church goers. The worst was what they called THE CRYPT , it was a downstairs cold and eerie place , just a room and I thought I was on a ghost hunt. Creepy.

“Special, Holy Place”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

St. Patrick's is a gorgeous Cathedral filled with great stained glass and serene solemnity. It's a nice stroll through a park to get there.

“Lovely, calming”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Beautiful, ornate church inside and out.

We visited on several occasions, the first we were treated to the ringing of the bells. The church gift shop is on grounds but in a separate building.

Located short 2 minute walk from Parliament House/TreasuryGardens.
