We didn't have a guided tour of this historic cathedral but thoroughly enjoyed walking around, both inside and outside. It's an integral part of the city's history and well worth a visit.

Such a wonderfully built Cathedral. It was a pleasure visiting this Holy Place. Being smaller than many of the other Cathedrals in the UK it was, despite its still considerable size, more intimate.

I went to the cathedral because my 4xgreat grandparents were married there in 1813. It has changed quite a bit since then but much of original facade still exists. The videotape at the front left area is worth watching and was informative and gave depth...More

Following the white-on-brown signs, which were clear and helpful from the pedestrian standpoint but would have been illegible from a car, we went to St. Columba’s, the 17th Century Church of Ireland cathedral built to serve the city’s Protestants. It was a handsome Anglo-Norman Gothic...More

While taking a walking tour of the wall, we took a detour to visit the cathedral and its grounds. We caught up with a volunteer who was very knowledgeable and cordial. Photos are not allowed; however, a visit is well worthwhile.
