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.

We were lucky enough to be in Dublin and get tickets to see the Guinness Choir with guest Eleanor Mcelvoy perform for Christmas. It was beautiful! As my husband pointed out, we have seen cathedrals all over Europe but they are usually just full of...More

Nice to have made the visit but it was just another church with tales to tell if the stone walls could talk or whisper

What a beautiful Cathedral, outside and inside. Though I was a bit more impressed with the outside. Inside beautiful sculptures, murals, glass work etc. over Christmas the Christmas tree display was quite nice. Loved every minute spend in here.More

Very imposing cathedral. A little out of the way in terms of a visit as I would have expected it to be a little more central. But the cathedral itself is worth a visit if anything.

I've visited many churches and cathedral but the St. Patrick's Cathedral is something different. It is huge and the stained glass is just breath taking. Worth a visit!

If you enjoy visiting religious site and are in Dublin, don't miss it. There is a nominal entrance fee. While in the Cathedral, don't miss the crypt, lots of good historical presentations.

We visited in time for a Choral Advent procession by candlelight. Beautiful spiritual experience. No entrance fee as it was a religious event

This and Christchurch Cathedral are both fairly similar in terms of beauty and style. If you like one, then you will like the other. We were again in love with the stain glass here and enjoyed the haunting Gothic style. There were very long lines...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.
