  • We really only made a brief visit to the Saint Patrick Centre so I have to confess my review was based only of a few aspects (primarily the cafe, to be honest). We visited during a break from an all-day tour elsewhere in the area (our guide said the centre served a really good lunch). The food here was absolutely top class! Everything was (or at least seemed to be) home made and really fresh. I had a sausage roll like I've never had before - thick, delicious sausage (full of shredded onion), and warm, crumbly pastry. My fiancée had beef stew which had the tastiest gravy. We shared a little shortbread biscuit and it took all of my self control to leave without clearing out the biscuit tray! We couldn't stay long but did have a chance to explore the gift shop and the gardens but would go back again given the chance. The staff here were really friendly despite being swamped with visitors at the time.
  • Great Experience! Learned about St. Patrick and all he has done. The staff was very friendly and the gift shop was an extra plus. A great idea for adults and children alike. A must see if you are in Northern Ireland!
