• About

    St Patrick’s Cathedral sits on a hill called ‘Ard Macha’ or the Heights of Macha.

    The name, Macha, stems from a legend of a tribal princess from pre-christian times which, in turn, is linked to the ritual site dating back to early Bronze Age times – Emain Macha. It is believed that the hill became the centre of the local tribe (Ulaid) that gave its name to Ulster. St Patrick gained the enclosure on this hill and built his first church here.

    Situated in the heart of the city, this cathedral forms the heart of this hauntingly beautiful historic region. All around this cathedral is architecture steeped in history – the Armagh Library, the Infirmary, Vicar’s Hill, Synod Hall and the See House. Each explains more about the times of this area and era.

    Opening times are usually 9am – 5pm and there is no entrance fee but a donation is suggested toward the upkeep of the building.
