St Patrick's Roman Catholic - outside

The Cathedral of St. Patrick (Roman Catholic) is the twin-spired cathedral built in the mid 1800's. The interior is Byzantine with representations of every Irish saint and many angels decorating it. Walk out the front door and down the steps of the cathedral to the small graveyard and view the magnificent high crosses and other markers.

St Patrick's Anglican - inside

Saint Patrick's, Anglican is beautiful and historic.

Armagh Ancestry, a genealogical research center for Co. Armagh, is located next to St. Patrick's Trian. At this writing (1998) it was open Monday through Saturday. Definitely worth a visit if you have Armagh ancestry.



St. Patrick's Trian is an interpretive center located on English Street comprised of audiovisual shows on the Armagh story (history of St. Patrick, belief, and pagan religious customs). There is also a Land of Lilliput exhibit dedicated to Jonathan Swift and Gulliver's Travels.

Other sites in Armagh City and surrounds are Navan Fort (Emain Macha) which was a center of pagan power in 600 BC;
Royal Fusiliers Museum; an observatory and the Armagh Public Library.
