This is a stunning cathedral with high arches and ceiling. The organ is amazing and so are the glass windows.

It's really fabulous and stand on the top of the hill with incredible view beyond city border. It has it own history and character. Opened during the day to public to come inside and pray. There are a long and great history you can read about inside.

When in town the Cathedral is a must visit. We enjoyed reading of the history and the beautiful mosaics. The Architecture was interesting and the view over the town is worth seeing.

A tour-de-force of art that glorifies God. beautiful and has a feeling of holiness. Make sure that you stop by their gift shop for really memorable souvenirs like Connaught marble rosaries.

Absolutely beautiful inside and out. I feel like this particular church is often overlooked. We happen to be driving by, noticed it, and decided to visit. I'm so glad we did. It is fabulous!

Tranquility & Reflection at yet another iconic Irish church at the heart of Irish Christendom - on the hill that was the site of the 'original' 'snakes out of Ireland' St Patrick's own early church. The hilltops are shared between two St Patrick's churches - one Catholic, one Church of Ireland - both equally stunning. A great place to get... More

Fantastic to visit and photograph before the worshippers arrive. Ashamed to say my first visit but this must be one of the top ten buildings to see in Ireland. Very impressive and an interesting story as to why it was sighted here. See the information as you come through the gates. Beautiful place to visit.

What an incredible building. Massive. We didn't go inside because it was Sunday and services were on. Out of respect we stayed outside the gates. The structure is formidable a top a tiered green hill. The architecture is stunning. Grounds are stunning. Happy we stopped by. It's a true testament to the money in the Catholic Church.
