3.8/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web
The city's oldest building still in daily use, St. Mary's Cathedral boasts beautiful architecture and a rich history. This ancient church was founded in 1163 and today is part of the protestant Church of Ireland. Admire the interior and discover its many historical treasures, including the five chandeliers that hang from the ceiling. The largest three were made in Dublin and presented to the cathedral in 1759. On the church grounds look for the United Nations Memorial Plaque, which lists the names of Irish men who died while serving in the United Nations.

  • Really well preserved piece of history. Begun in the 12th century, the church is a great example of construction thru the years and has well preserved example of religious fixtures from all ages. 
  • It is attractive, but I agree that it is better on the outside to inside. I between free culture overnight, but also I think that the price of the ticket is excessive.

  • It's been there since 1100s and is amazing to still be able to go in and see it still being used. Historic and inspiring - well worth a visit.
