Built in 1220, St. Patrick's Cathedral is the largest cathedral in Ireland, and one of the country's most important pilgrimage sites. The stained glass in the windows, depicting various biblical stories, date back almost two centuries. In 1901, during building works, six Celtic grave slabs dating back to the 10th century were unearthed. One of these unearthed stones appeared to be the ancient remains of a well, which is thought to be the same well which Saint Patrick used in the fifth century. At this site, Saint Patrick would have baptised people into Christianity over 1500 years ago. St Patrick is traditionally credited as the man who brought Christianity to Ireland. If you wish to attend a service at the cathedral, there are services held daily, which all are welcome to attend.
Guided tours are available daily to showcase the many features and history of the church. Because the Cathedral does not receive regular government funding, those who visit it as an attraction are asked to pay a small admission fee. This fee helps to pay for the enormous costs relating to the upkeep of the building.
