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.

A wonderful tourist attraction AND architectural wonder. The cathedral itself still serves as an actual cathedral, but the outer portion acts a museum, teaching of it's history. Definitely a worthwhile stop and I recommend the guided tour, whether it be for a large group or just a small party - would visit again. Intriguing history.
Beautiful church, though the interior is filled with historical exhibits which tends to take away from the majesty of the place. There was a fantastic memorial up while we were there recognizing lives lost in The Great War for the centennial anniversary of the armistice in 1918; 36,000 paper leaves were strung from interior of the roof using fishing line for a very beautiful and moving tribute.
Another of the amazing sites to visit in this beautiful city. Steeped in ancient history and full of many historic monuments which bring the culture of the city's background to life. Well worth a visit.
Gorgeous place to visit, well worth the entrance fee (€5). Beautiful architecture, and if you can, hop on the tour! Our guide was so nice and fun, I wish I could remember her name...
One of the most interactive cathedrals I’ve been to with plenty of hands on displays, information panels as well as exhibitions of contemporary pieces. Stunning stained glass windows and very ornate for a Protestant church. Nevertheless, it’s a bit ironic that the first 10% of the chapel is converted into a tourist shop. Matthew 21:12 - Jesus entered the temple and drove our all those who were buying and selling there.... Let’s see if he makes a come back ;-)
