Did not have time to visit the inside but been told it is very nice. Driving around the boundaries was good for photoshoots and talk to locals about it, if time permits visit the inside and surroundings.

The atomisphere was quite exceptional. I love all the beautiful stained glasses. The staff were welcoming and approachable. I asked one of the staff about stained glasses and he kindly explained them for me (it was kind of brief but consice).

If you go to the church you should also go to a service before exploring it. My wife and I truly had a good experience!

I love visiting architecturally significant sites, and St. Patrick's Cathedral did not disappoint. It is stunningly beautiful from its manicured grounds outside, to its ornamental façade, to its impressive arches and immaculate stained glass. What I wasn't expecting was its huge collection of statues taking...More

Pants will be fine. Tour with guide takes a while but they also offer a great self tour with excellent signage and brochure.

No not to go to Mass but you have to get there a little early to get a seat. If you are just going to see the Catheredral then you have to buy a ticket.
