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 - Write a Review
Totally agree with other reviewers who say this is more of an historical tourist site than a religious place. Beautiful building and an interesting view of history that took this from a Catholic Church to Church of Ireland (Protestant). Worth a visit!
It is well worth timing your visit to coincide with the guided tour, which is included in your entry fee. The cathedral has a fascinating history so deeply tied to that of the city. It is beautiful and impressive inside.
Definitely worth going on the free guided tour of you're visiting the cathedral, our tour guide was super friendly and extremely knowledgeable! She gave us a perfect insight into the history of the cathedral and it's architecture. Only docked a star as it's extremely busy and touristy - we arrived before 10am and it was already packed, so loses the sense of peace and reflection a bit.
We had a great time at the St. Patrick's Cathedral. The brass etchings were a ton of fun for both adults and children. The death masks and skulls are also incredibly interesting to see.
Very interesting attraction in Dublin. We got there early in the day which I recommend. By the time we were ready to go the Cathedral was getting packed with tourists and school groups. However, in the morning there were only a few groups walking around, it felt like we had the Cathedral to ourselves. The Cathedral is much more than just a church. They have many exhibits set up, describing Ireland's history. Definitely worth stopping by. It is self-guided so you can take as much time as you want.
