Welcome to Armagh’s Anglican Cathedral

Saint Patrick’s Church of Ireland Cathedral stands on the hill from which the City of Armagh derives its name – Ard Macha; the hill of Macha. Less than half a mile away, on the adjoining hill, is our sister St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Cathedral.

In recent years many visitors have returned again to Armagh, the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland and I hope this website will encourage you to do so too. Both Cathedrals are part of the Northern Ireland Tourist Board’s St Patrick’s Signature Trail, and all of us involved in their oversight are keen to ensure that visitors to Armagh’s Christian heritage sites feel welcome and inspired.

You will be most welcome to join us at any of our Sunday or daily services or just to spend time either in quiet reflection or looking at the beautiful architecture.

The Very Rev Gregory Dunstan

Dean
