With skip-the-line tickets to St Patrick’s you will avoid waiting in line, so there will be more time to admire this beautiful Gothic church inside and out. Your Private Guide will tell you the old legend of St Patrick and lesser known stories, like the one about The Door of Reconciliation and the origins of the phrase “to chance your arm”. You will also learn about the notable individuals who are buried on the site, such as Jonathan Swift, the author of Gulliver’s Travels. Other highlights of this tour include a walk through the historic center of Dublin, during which you will also see the Christ Church Cathedral, which serves as the seat of the Archbishop of Dublin. You will also discover the majestic Dublin Castle, the Georgian-style City Hall, and many other historic buildings and monuments. With every step you will learn more about Dublin’s rich history, culture and heritage. Book a 3-hour tour to visit St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the second cathedral of Dublin, the Christ Church Cathedral. Skip-the-line tickets to both churches are included to save time.
