  • Wonderful Atmosphere throughout this Fascinating Building. Peaceful Music allows you to Fully Enjoy the Totally Unique "St.Patrick Experience". Wonderful and Relaxing Garden Cafe upstairs with lift for disabled access. Staff are all most efficient,Helpful,Polite and Well Mannered. I thoroughly recommend this Well Conceived Visitor Attraction in the Town dedicated to Itelands Patron Saint.
  • Lovely cafe with good food and very friendly staff. Plenty on offer in the whole centre.
  • Lovely warm staff. Video and exhibition are enlightening. Short walk up to St Patricks grave.
  • Nice place with a lovely garden in the back. There's a nice little cafĂ© upstairs that's pretty cheap
  • Parking is limited, it has a nice shop and there is a visitors office. A reasonable coffee shop, garden and trail to St Patrick's grave.
