WALK THROUGH HISTORY IN IRELAND’S NATIONAL CATHEDRAL

The Saint Patrick’s Cathedral is the national cathedral of the Church of Ireland and is located in the heart of the city centre.

First established in 1191, the cathedral is still an active place of worship and one of the popular attractions of Dublin.

Saint Patrick’s Cathedral is one of the most important Christian sites in Ireland. Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, and it is said that he baptised Christian converts nearby, making the location a holy site. 

As you wander inside the cathedral, you can enjoy and be impressed by its grand size. It is in fact the largest and tallest church in Ireland.

The cathedral’s architecture is spectacular as well. You can admire its colourful tiled flooring and one of the largest organs in Ireland. The 43-metre (141 feet) cathedral spire is now a landmark of the city scape.

If you wish to visit, the cathedral is open daily, charging a small admission fee for sightseers. We recommend pre-booking for the timeslot that suits you. There are also free guided tours available daily and audio guides available.
