Just visit as not far from the office as feel the need to visit the church. Well preserved and in rich with history. Peacefully during business day and lots of tourists on weekend. Have great list of organ concerts, and suitable for spending your time to look around great collection displayed inside.

The original St. Patricks, this place exudes holiness and is constantly amazing with its history. It is sad how diminished the congregation is if you worship there on a Sunday morning.

Called on a lovely Autumn Sunday afternoon to view the Church of Ireland cathedral (dedicated to St. Patrick) before calling with friends near Armagh. Ecclesiastical buildings are among our interests and we rated this well worth a visit. The location is quite spectacular, being on top of a small hill and not overshadowed or crowded out by other buildings. The... More

Totally surprised to find this amazing cathedral in such a small town. It's perched high on a hill overlooking the city and the interior rivals the grandest cathedrals in the largest cities.

There are multiple churches in the village of Armagh so make sure to plan on which ones you are planning to see.

Parts of the cathedral have been rebuilt and renovated over the centuries. Brian Ború, king of all Ireland, in the X century is... More
