Ornate, yet respectful, prayerful and welcoming. The cathedral site itself is impressive and you can really feel the hand of history here.

I go here often to worship. Truly magnificent structure with spectacular mosaics and decorative architecture inside and out. Great views from its vantage point on one of Armagh's seven hills. Well worth a visit.
