Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Leinster / County Dublin / Dublin / Saint Patrick's Cathedral
The resting place of writer Jonathan Swift, Saint Patrick's Cathedral represents the largest church in Ireland. Over a thousand years old, this imposing Gothic structure features a 43 m (140 ft) tall spire, one of the city's major architectural landmarks. Built in honor of Ireland's patron saint, the building stands next to an old well allegedly used by Saint Patrick to baptize converts to Christianity. Pay the small fee to sightsee inside the historical cathedral, which contains fine examples of medieval stained glass and a 4,000-pipe organ, one of Ireland's largest. Check online for a downloadable audio guide and a schedule of daily services, guided tours, and special events.

Saint Patrick's Cathedral reviews
Beautiful Cathedral with so much history. Definitely worth a visit. It’s very Close to Christ Church so you can visit both in one half day.

We didn’t have the time to visit the inside, but from the outside I can say this is a formidable Cathedral. Local stone was used during its construction.

Beautiful church with a lot of history. You do have to pay 8 euros for entrance. There are discounts for over 60. With the entrance fee you getaway audio guide. There is a lot to see see and you can spend several hours walking around this beautiful church. There is also a nice park adjacent to the Cathedral. It is well worth making a trip.
Absolutely breathtaking architecture and design. There is so much rich history in this castle. The self guided tour gives you a huge deep look into all the items of the cathedral and the many things that happened there. We originally were going to spend 45 minutes here but decided to skip another pre-booked €75 tour somewhere else to spent close to two hours here and take everything in because it was that amazing.
