Details about this tour

Arrive in the ancient City of Down from morning to mid-afternoon for a warm welcome at the Saint Patrick Centre - the only exhibition about Ireland's Patron Saint in the world. This amazing multimedia presentation will take you back in time to the early 400s where you willlisten to Patrick's own words as he narrates you through his life.

Then, hold onto your hats as you experience our incredible IMAX cinema helicopter flight to all of the places in Ireland associated with Saint Patrick. After the Exhibition join our Guide who will then take you through the beautiful wooded Cathedral Hill to visit one of the most sacred sites in Ireland - the Grave of Saint Patrick. It is here, under a massive granite stone, in the shadow of the medieval cathedral of Down that Patrick was buried when he died in Downpatrick on the 17th March and was later joined by the two other apostles of Ireland - Saint Bridget and Saint Columcille.

Your guide will then walk with you along the stunning Georgian Mall to view the most recent galleries of Down County Museum which include the magnificent Downpatrick High Cross dating from the 900s AD.

    I loved this tour our great tour guide for the Centre was KAREN the girl with the red hair lol she was very informative about St. Patrick and Downpatrick as well. We explored St. Patrick's grave site and the cathedral and others around him and heard different stories of history...loved it and thoroughly enjoyed our time with Karen, Thank you. Next stop of the tour we met George and he took us on a tour of the jail and very knowledgeable in the history of the jail thoroughly enjoyed history lessons especially working at a jail myself....some things never change lol. George you sure know your stuff and you and Karen picked the same best place to have a pint and lunch. This tour was suppose to be two hour but I guess we were too interested and it lasted a bit longer Thank you again....we will visit Downpatrick again. Candy and Frank, Vancouver BC
