It is my pleasure as Dean of Down to welcome you.

As well as being a very historical site and popular place to visit, Down Cathedral is primarily a Christian place of prayer and worship.

Very Rev Henry Hull
Down Cathedral stands prominently on the Hill of Down, overlooking the ancient and historic town of Downpatrick.
It is a special place steeped in history and prayer. Tradition holds that Patrick was buried on the Hill of Down and for over 1600 years Christians have worshipped on this site. They still do.

With a host of fascinating features to see both inside and out, Down Cathedral is one of the destinations on St Patrick’s Trail and well worth a visit for pilgrims and tourists alike.

We look forward to welcoming you to this sacred place.
