Saint Patrick’s Roman Catholic Cathedral

Places to See | Co. Armagh, Northern Ireland.



Armagh…The spiritual Capital of Ireland for 1500 years and the seat of both Church of Ireland and Catholic archbishops, Armagh is the oldest and most venerated of Irish Cities and has a long Christian heritage.

The Cathedral stands on a hill, as does its Anglican counterpart, and has twin spires. A must see for visitors to Armagh and its Christian heritage sites.

This is a most curious example of a very important building which changes both architect, and architectural style, half way up the walls. The bottom half was designed in 1838, in the English Perpendicular Gothic style, by Thomas Duff of Newry; the top half designed in 1853, in the French Decorated Gothic style, by J. J. McCarthy of Dublin.

Address: Saint Patrick’s Roman Catholic Cathedral, Cathedral Road, Armagh, Co. Armagh BT61 8BE

      Thanks for your comment. We’re not affiliated with the Cathedral. We are photobloggers who travel across Ireland with 360° cameras recording where we go on this website.

      You would need to contact them directly.
      Thanks

We flew our drone over Downpatrick town and captured a couple of aerial 360° photographs. Look out for the marker points in the aerial virtual tours, some of which will allow you to jump from the sky down into some of the various visitor attractions found in the town.
