Saint Patrick Centre, County Down
The Centre is an exciting interpretative exhibition which tells the fascinating story of Ireland's Patron Saint. Through Patrick's own words a light is shone on the arrival of Christianity in Ireland and its development through his mission. A series of interactive displays allow visitors to explore how Patrick's legacy developed in early Christian times and reveal the fabulous artwork and metalwork which was produced during this Golden Age. The exhibition also examines the major impact of Irish missionaries in Dark Age Europe - a legacy which remains to this day.
The Saint Patrick Centre is the perfect venue to stop and explore St. Patrick’s Country. The Centre is located 2 hrs. north of Dublin and 40 mins. south of Belfast between the Mountains of Mourne and scenic Strangford Lough.
