Founded in the 12th century, St. Patrick's Cathedral is the tallest church in Ireland, with its 140 feet tall spire. It's located in the Wood Quay area of Dublin, close to many of the city's other attractions.
The cathedral offers free guided tours and also hosts a regular program of concerts. It's known for its decorative tiled floor and for the 500 or so prominent people who are buried under the floor and in the adjoining graveyard.
St. Patrick's also has some of the heaviest church bells anywhere in the world, and they can be heard during Sunday services and weekly bell ringing practice.Places nearby:
