  • When visiting Armargh, one may not the Cathedral of St. Patrick's Miss. It is a an impressive church with great mosaics. The admission is free.

  • A beautiful cathedral of neo gothic architecture. The exterior is a little plane for gothic, the interior is magnificent with mosaics from top to bottom and the high altar is new deviating from its original design. The location is fantastic with a good city view.
  • A very impressive building and the artwork in the ceiling is particularly worth checking out. Lots of lost stories about Irish saints hidden up there
  • Beautiful St. Patrick's Catholic Cathedral on a hill. Much nicer than the Anglican St. Patrick's on the other side of town that used to be a Catholic Cathedral before Henry VIII took it over.
  • Its a peacefull religious place.,nice view to take a selfie.....
  • Stunning on the inside and out. Great parking space available.
