St Patrick’s Cathedral
St. Patrick’s Cathedral was built between the years of 1191 and 1270, on the site where St. Patrick is said to have baptized converts to Christianity. Also known as Árd Eaglais Naomh Pádraig, St. Patrick’s is the largest church in Ireland. Bell ringing is a traditional skill that forms a large part of St. Patrick’s Cathedral’s history – visitors to Dublin can hear the bell ringers practicing on Tuesday evenings from 18:30 to 19:30. Bell Ringing also takes place each Sunday at 10:30 and at 14:30. Anyone visiting the Cathedral will have the opportunity to experience the long history of the St. Patrick’s. Including the building itself there is also a range of historical items, stories, monuments and more on display to educate and inform members of the public about the history and importance of the site. Amongst the long list of former Deans of St. Patricks is writer and author of Gulliver’s Travels, Jonathan Swift. He served as Dean of the Cathedral from 1713 until 1745- just one of the many fascinating facts that will form part of the St. Patrick’s Cathedral tour.
St. Patricks Cathedral is within walking distance of the Drury Court. Once of our stafff members will be happy to provide you with directions to this National treasure.
