A magnificent cathedral that houses Jonathan Swift's remains (he wrote Gulliver's Travels). It is the only remaining cathedral in Ireland with a daily sung services. A small entrance fee is charged for tourists and all money raised goes back to paying for the upkeep of the building.

Beautiful church with a great staff. We was there for a holy mass, and after that we can see the church. It’s fascinating and unbelivable. And they have Hungarian leaflet about the church! :)

6.5eur entrance fee is quite a bit. Queue for tickets and entrance too. Worth seeing though. Don’t miss, on your way out , the original baptismal bowl St Patrick used in the 5th century to baptize the converts back then. Park and outside is free...More

I cannot remember exactly which streets we took but we walked everywhere so my answer is yes. No cabs, no buses. We just walked.

A very large gift shop. The cathedral is more of a commercial exercise, rather than a place of worship.
