About St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin

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

  • Really nice staff. Very informative. A very big cathedral and one of the oldest in western Europe. The school is the oldest in western Europe and they are the only cathedral in Europe to hold two services a day. It costs £7 for an adult to enter and £6 for a student. To attend the drive is free, which starts at 5pm and finishes at 6pm. There is a morning drive also.

  • Lovely cathedral with a nice small park next door. It can be one of those lovely places to go for a picnic on a sunny day but remember if you're a tourist you can't drink alcohol in public spaces in Ireland, unless done on the sly. The bells ringing is always nice to hear adds a great atmosphere to the place.

  • You can’t miss out on St. Patrick’s cathedral if you’re going to Ireland, for Pete’s sake!! This is another stop on the Dublin Pass and well worth the visit for the cathedral itself and the neighboring park. You’ll learn a lot about the history of the cathedral with the self guided tour and it’s truly a beautiful (but not the MOST beautiful you’ll see in Europe) site to see in Ireland. There’s a small gift shop located at the entrance of the place where you can buy some souvenir items and trinkets to take home as well.

  • Walking in rural Dublin, we came across this idyllic building called the st. Patrick's cathedral. Although my beliefs do not align with Christianity, I can admire a beautiful building when I see one. Therefore it is such a shame that you are forced to pay a quite hefty amount for the entrance to this cathedral. This is a stark contrast to the musea in Dublin, which are all free to enter. I am not planning to give anymore money to this religion, after my family has been forced to buy pardons for centuries. 2 out of 5 stars, would not visit again.

  • It is a nice cathedral but very crowded. I was disappointed to find the gift shop in the middle of the cathedral blocking some of the views. Not really sure this is the way to go about it. Would also appreciate some more information on the history of this place.
