Travel back in time through the oldest and largest religious settlements in the country.

Gaze at stone relics in St. Patrick's Cathedral, its church and porch revealing a number of medieval grave slabs. Visit St. Mary's Abbey, the remains of an Augustinian monastery founded in the 12th century which became a focal point for pilgrimage.
