St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin City
Built in honor of Ireland’s patron saint, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral stands adjacent to the famous well where tradition has it Saint Patrick baptized converts on his visit to Dublin.The parish church of Saint Patrick on this site was granted collegiate status in 1191, and raised to cathedral status in 1224. The present building dates from 1220. The Cathedral is today the National Cathedral of the Church of Ireland (a church of the Anglican Communion).
Today the Cathedral is open to all people as an architectural and historical site, but principally as a place of worship. Charges are made for those visiting for sightseeing and these contributions directly support the future of this holy and historic building.
The Cathedral does not provide regular guided tours but there are detailed walking guides of the Cathedral available when you arrive. During June, July, August and September there will be guided tours at 11.30, 12.30 and 14.30 Monday to Saturday. There is no extra charge for these tours, however the normal admission charge to the Cathedral will apply.
The Cathedral is located at the junction of Patrick Street and Upper Kevin Street. It is easily accessible by foot from the centre of the city.
