Fascinating. You have to take a breath and think to get your mind around how long this site has been an active church and all that has gone on here. Beautiful grounds, gardens and cemetery.

St. Patrick's COI cathedral is another must see when visiting Armagh. Structurally it is very different to the magnificent RC cathedral but personally I found it equally as interesting. The history of the cathedral makes it a place well worthy of visiting. The grounds are lovely too with well maintained areas where one can sit and enjoy magnificent views over the city.

situated atop a great hill overlooking Armagh City, this centuries old cathedral was stately and impressive. we especially enjoyed walking around the quiet grounds and soaking in the atmosphere.

On a recent trip to Armagh we decided to visit St Patrick's Cathedral and we were really looking forward to it. Stepped inside the "church" and was greeted by a man in a pay booth at the bottom of the church building requesting a £3 charge each, Now I know these buildings have to be maintained and I am not against voluntary donations.......but this is a Church a House of God not somewhere to make money. I refused to pay and therefore had to leave. What a shame that you cannot visit a place of worship without someone looking you to pay for the pleasure.
