This is a beautiful and picturesque place to do a Dublin photo shoot! The lawn is green, there's a fountain and a playground which was great for kids while the adults learned about the history!

This wonderful church is amazing outside as well inside. The architecture here is stunning, there is so much history here I recommend going on a tour guide then going around on your own as there is so much to see it can be easy to miss something out. There is a gift shop here as well as WiFi. I also... More

Don't skip this! The history and architecture and grandiosity of this place is breathtaking! A little touristy with their gift shop for an active place of worship but worth a visit.

The grounds are beautiful and was so nice to see people enjoying the lawn area. Decided against going inside as the queue was quite long but the outside is very impressive.

They offer free 30 minute tours by local volunteers which made this a charming experience for us. The basic printed guide that they give you could never compare to the sweetness of our Irish guide. She was thorough, knowledgable, and yet the tour was brief. She was quite willing to answer additional questions however and she had lovely suggestions of... More

I expected a solemn church-like experience. Instead it was a bevy of activity with 200+ people, a bake sale, a Shoppe, multiple small group tours, etc. It was a beautiful spectacle and we had a chance to hear a lovely group of chamber musicians perform in the evening. I liked the 'relief rubbing' activity where you could capture some of... More

Suggest taking advantage of the free tour it really brings home the intricate details of the memorials and restoration of the Cathedral.

I have visited other cathedrals in different countries and this was was awesome outside but not worth the cost for the inside at all.

St. Patricks has combined old world beauty with modern technology. They have a great "interactive" area for children and have recently brought attention to WWI and its soldiers. It is beautiful and interesting. The employees are very nice and will answer questions patiently. Originally, the people I was with didn't want to pay (small fee) but left saying how worth... More
