Ireland: Dublin – St. Patrick’s Cathredral

t Patrick’s Cathezral is the national cathedral of the Church of Ireland. The Catholic cathedral was founded in 1191. The legend has it that it was on this spot in 450 AD that St Patrick converted to Christianity. Being the central church of the country, it is loaded with historical memorabilia and relics of all types, including various tombs – over 500 of them. Soaring ceilings, ornate halls, spectacular windows – it’s all here. Jonathan Swift, the author of Gulliver Travel, was the dean of St Patrick’s Cathedral for over 30 years and his tomb is here!
