Free Guided Tours of St Patrick's Cathedral
10AM & 3PM

Prayer has been offered at this place for centuries. In the fifth century, Saint Patrick used a nearby well to baptise converts to Christianity. A small church was built, marking it as a sacred place near the heart of Dublin. The present building dates from 1220 and has seen wars, revolutions, and a reformation. Today the Cathedral continues to welcome new generations from all the nations of the world.
