Saint Patrick's Cathedral
St Patrick's is one of two Anglican cathedrals in Dublin. It is built on the site where St Patrick is said to have baptized converts to Christianity. St Patrick's Cathedral, in its present state, was constructed in 1192, replacing an original wooden chapel. The main attractions in St Patrick's are the tombs of Jonathan Swift and his lover in the nave. The cathedral also contains the longest medieval nave in Ireland, and a stone slab, engraved with a Celtic cross, that covers the well from which St Patrick baptized the converts. The adjoining garden is a welcome oasis in this densely built-up district of the city. Open hours vary seasonally, check the website for details.
this cathedral is amazing! I love Dublin itself and I've only been in dublin for two days and 6 months later: my CD player is filled with irish pub music, i still have the irish accent and i love guenness. But this cathedral is very beautiful and is worth seeing if you can. The way it was structured was fantastic. I recomend anyone who likes to admire buildings you should definetly see this one
