About this experience

It is rare for a city to have 2 cathedrals, but Dublin does because St Patrick serves as the national cathedral of Ireland. On this private tour of the old town we invite you to visit St Patrick’s Cathedral with an Expert-Guide to discover its rich history, legends and sacred treasures. Hear the origins of St. Patrick’s Day and Dublin!

Book a 2-hour walking tour to visit St Patrick’s Cathedral and see Dublin’s top sights. With skip-the-line tickets to St Patrick’s you will avoid waiting in line, so there will be more time to admire this beautiful Gothic church inside and out. Your Private Guide will tell you the old legend of St Patrick and lesser known stories, like the one about The Door of Reconciliation and the origins of the phrase “to chance your arm”. You will also learn about the notable individuals who are buried on the site, such as Jonathan Swift, the author of Gulliver’s Travels.

Other highlights of this tour include a walk through the historic center of Dublin, during which you will also see the Christ Church Cathedral, which serves as the seat of the Archbishop of Dublin. You will also discover the majestic Dublin Castle, the Georgian-style City Hall, and many other historic buildings and monuments. With every step you will learn more about Dublin’s rich history, culture and heritage.

Book a 3-hour tour to visit St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the second cathedral of Dublin, the Christ Church Cathedral. Skip-the-line tickets to both churches are included to save time. The Christ Church Cathedral was built by a Viking king and is one of the city’s oldest buildings. Inside, you will marvel at a stunning interior and the largest medieval crypt in Ireland and Britain, home to a mummified cat and rat.
