Down Cathedral

The historical burial place of Saint Patrick

Welcome to the Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity, close to which we believe the mortal remains of Saint Patrick lie buried. However the cathedral is not merely a tourist attraction but it is a place of pilgrimage and prayer for all people.

Down Cathedral is the Cathedral Church of the Church of Ireland (Anglican) Diocese of Down and here the Bishop of the Diocese has his episcopal seat (Cathedra).

The Cathedral hosts major festivals and services for the Diocese, the highlight being the annual St Patrick’s Day celebrations on 17th March.

The Cathedral is also home to a small congregation who worship here Sunday by Sunday.

The Cathedral is open every day for daily prayer and because of its unique situation and historic association with St Patrick it serves as a focal point for Christians of all denominations.
