On our third day we got to visit St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The last time I wanted to go inside it was closed for reasons I can’t remember.

“Saint Patrick is said to have baptised converts to Christianity at a well that once existed in the park alongside the Cathedral. Because of this association with Saint Patrick, a church has stood here since the fifth century. The Normans built a church in stone on this site in 1191.
