Down Cathedral
The historical burial place of Saint Patrick
Welcome to the Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity – known as Down Cathedral – close to which we believe the mortal remains of Saint Patrick lie buried.

The cathedral is not merely a tourist attraction for people interested in Patrick – it is a place of pilgrimage, prayer and welcome for everyone.

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

Here you will find information about services and events in Down Cathedral, a little about our history and ongoing ministry today.
As well as being a very historical site and popular place to visit, Down Cathedral is primarily a Christian place of prayer and worship.

I would love to welcome you in person as a visitor to our Cathedral and if you would like any further information or would like to send a prayer request please use the contact form.

Every blessing.
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.
