This centre does a good job of telling the story of St Patrick. It also houses a nice gift shop, a lovely cafe and once you walk up the hill through the garden, you can visit St Patrick's grave and the cathedral, which is beautiful....More

As an American tourist, I was in full panic when I realized I lost my iPhone! Tim Campell not only found it but shipped my phone back to our hotel room. Tremendous place and a wonderful staff!

Get a guided tour and give yourself some time (2-3hours) to see everything the centre has to offer. A very interesting place and understand how St.Patrick fits into the history of Ireland.
