I was so impressed with this building. I admit, it bothered me at first when I realized that you had to pay to visit the building; however, once I realized the amount of money it must take for upkeep on a building of this kind, I understood that the entrance fee, as well as the gift shop, are an integral part of keeping this history available for all to get to see. The building is quite amazing, with gorgeous stained glass windows, lovely wood furnishings and beautiful paintings and tapestries. I was especially intrigued by the fact that the Guinness family have donated largely to keeping this building in good repair and available for tourism, and for regular worship! I loved this visit and am so glad it was part of our recent visit to Ireland!

The history of the church and the connections between the Guinness family and Johnathan Swift was fascinating.

Beautiful cathedral. Video that played near the rear of the building was very informative, Worth seeing the door with an axe cut through it.

Looks very nice inside. It's bigger than it looks. Take a closer look to the details like floor. You can find toilets and small boutique inside.

Really enjoyed it, Tour Guide was excellent. On the plus side, my Uncle died in WW1 and was a member of The South Irish Horse. To see the wall memorial to his unit, also their flag, was very moving. I will be back. On the minus side, the gift shop was very poor, no fault of the people working there but you would travel far to find a more tacky shop. Something badly needs to be done here. However, all in all, put it high on your list for a visit.

I felt like I stepped back in history the moment we walked through the doors! The architecture was absolutely breathtaking and learning more about the Irish history and culture was fascinating!

Maybe I am cynical, but you pay 5 EU and enter a gift shoppe... I love to visit old churches and cathedrals whenever in Europe. This place is like a Disnayland version of a cathedral... sort of a ride through one. Really disappointing.

Still a functional Church. More impressive in my mind than christ church cathedral down the road. We were lucky to be there when a choir was practicing before a service. .. and it added an amazing atmosphere to the place. The stain glass was great and it is home to some really old flags, and large murals on the walls. 5 euro to get in, but if you go for a service. ;-)
