Interested in St Patrick? Then you'll love Armagh where the saint's legacy is still strong. Patrick reputedly had a stone church built on a hill here back in 445AD. And at this very spot, where St Patrick’s Church of Ireland Cathedral now stands, you can descend to a crypt dating from the Middle Ages to discover treasures including stone carvings of people and animals.
Atop a hill on the other side of the valley is the twin-spired Roman Catholic Cathedral also dedicated to St Patrick. And you can discover even more about Armagh's sacred history when you venture outside the city limits. Visit the place from which Ulster's ancient kings once ruled: Emain Macha (Navan Fort), which boasts a fascinating visitor centre.
