St Patrick's Cathedral - Review
St. Patrick’s Cathedral is the largest church in Ireland. The stunning towers and the archway certainly make it a pretty sight to see. The entire church area is surrounded by a field and trees. People who come in the church can enjoy the sun sitting on the grass field outside. The inside of the church is the pride of Irish architecture. The ceiling is ornately decorated with lights and glass. It has two big rows of seats along with a long passage in the middle.
Perhaps the most significant thing is that the place is a fully functioning church. Regular prayer and confessions take place in the cathedral. The priests along with the Arch Bishop make the rituals of Baptism.
However, the church is open to all irrespective of one’s religion. Many schools with their students come to visit the church for educational purposes. The Hymn singing is certainly an ethereal experience worth the visit. Be sure to try and be there when the choir is rehearsing. Inside the church, there are many black and white statues made of pure marble, which reflect the Irish architecture. The church is also home to a library where holy books are kept.

St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin Reviews
Beautiful park to sit outside and even more beautiful church! When I first saw St. Patrick's cathedral, my jaw dropped. Very peaceful setting to sit in the park and relax. If there are tours for this place, do it! Because of my travel arrangements, we weren't able to go inside.
Beautiful church. The only thing is that you have to pay, if understand if you are “donating to the church restoration but they just try to make money with everything. Even a big gift shop inside the church.
A very nice cathedral in Dublin's city centre in late gothic style. The coloured patterned floor was nice also. Inside there are statues of important Irish people. I personally didn't like the shop with souvenirs (not regarding the church itself) inside, that was ruining the stunning and breathtaking view of the central nave. Moreover you need to pay an entrance fee of € 7 for adults (€ 6 for students and seniors). I think that paying in order to visit a church (without guided tour) is not honest! All in all I'm quite satisfied.
This a cathedral is a must see in Dublin. Lots of art. The cathedral was restored in 19th century. Make sure visit early so you could catch the guided tour. Bring a good camera with you to capture this breathtaking experience.
One of the must see of Dublin. The cathedral has been completely restored in the mid of the 19th century by mr. Guinness (font miss his statue on the side of the cathedral). We had the pleasure to join a guided tour (free!), which was absolutely amazing. Catherine, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and passionate. Thanks to her, we could enjoy some small details that otherwise we would have missed. As the tour was not very well advertised in the website, I do recommend you to take a better look and / or drop an email.
