    The home of St Patrick

    St Patrick's Cathedral, County Armagh

    catherines-college-armagh-city catherines-college-armagh-city

    After lunch, it’s time to explore the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland. When St Patrick initially visited Armagh city, the patron saint called it his “sweet hill” and would later build his first stone church here. Today, two cathedrals are dedicated to the saint – the Church of Ireland Cathedral on Sally Hill, and the lofty spires of St Patrick’s Cathedral on the opposite hill.


    Admire collections ranging from fine art and archaeology to natural history by visiting the oldest county museum on the island, Armagh County Museum. The Armagh Robinson Library and No.5 Vicars’ Hill also provide a captivating insight into Ireland’s Christian past and the history of Armagh.


    If you plan to visit both cathedrals, it’s a 20-minute walk or a 7-minute cycle from the city centre.

    While you’re there, relax with a picnic or explore the nearby Boer War memorial and the Crimean Cannon. If you’re lucky, you might catch the local Armagh Cricket Club playing a match on the lush parkland.
