St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin


Founded in 1191, St. Patrick’s Cathedral has contributed considerably to Irish life throughout history. The only cathedral in these islands to sing two services everyday, music is an integral part of the beautiful landmark, dating back to 1752 with the debut of Handel’s Messiah.


Aside from the exquisite splendour, its history and characters resonate through every nook in the place. Built in honour of Ireland’s patron saint, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral stands adjacent to the famous wall where tradition has it Saint Patrick baptised converts on his visit to Dublin.
