Christchurch or St. Patrick's?

We're visiting Dublin briefly next week. If we had to choose one cathedral to visit which should it be? Thanks for any suggestions!

Christchurch for me, but they are very close to each other so you could walk from one to the other easily.

Both are sufficiently different to warrant a trip to both if time permits. Christchurch has a great exhibit next door called Dublinia worth a visit to experience viking and medieval Dublin.

When visiting St. Patrick's do not miss a chance to drop in to Marsh's Library next door, through the gothic archway gate. It's the oldest working library in the world and is wonderful.

Christchurch is my favorite interior and exterior. You could pay to enter Christchurch, walk the short distance to St. Patrick's for the exterior view and then head around the corner the view Marsh's Library.
