Education Visits

Saint Patrick’s Cathedral is your Cathedral, steeped in living history and tales of famous characters past and present. We are one of Ireland’s most popular tourist attractions and one of Dublin’s most admired places. But step inside and you will discover that the Cathedral is a centre of imaginative and immersive learning for all people, regardless of their background.

What’s on offer?

The Cathedral Education Department provides students of all ages an interactive encounter with this sacred space. We offer a wide range of thematic guided tours and workshops, which can be tailored to your chosen learning objectives and the school curriculum. All of these activities are free for Irish school and university students who attend as part of an organised education visit.
