St. Pat's was very beautiful, and also very informative. I'd recommend trying to plan your visit around the free guided tours. Our guide was fabulous and I learned so much!

This is not a review of the Cathedral tour - but for the Cathedral as a venue for a concert. Billy Bragg & Joe Henry recently played there as part of Trad Fest 2017. It's great them in a venue where everyone is just there to listen and enjoy the music.Obviously there's no bar, so it's quite quiet, no people... More

My primary purpose of traveling is to see the culture of a different place. Architecture is always a great way to do this. Unfortunately, most of Dublin was underwhelming in this aspect, but St Patrick's didn't disappoint! If you are in Dublin to feel as though you're in Ireland, check out this church!

We enjoyed our visit here, plenty of history with a gorgeous church as the backdrop. It's very busy, so be prepared to wait, but worth that wait. Good hands on activities to keep young ones engaged.

Lovely interior, glass windows were fantastic and the information about the history of the cathedral was very interesting to read, especially how the phrase 'chance your arm' came from.

The grounds were beautiful and it was a nice stop to slow down for awhile. Went ahead and paid to get in, but didn't do the walking tour. We were in and out in 30 minutes. The stain glassed windows are beautiful.
