The Saint Patrick Centre

The Saint Patrick Centre is the only permanent exhibition in the world about Ireland’s Patron Saint. Located beside Saint Patrick’s Grave and the Cathedral of Down in the medieval town of Downpatrick we are a perfect stop for the day-tripper or tourist travelling between Belfast and Dublin.

The first church in Ireland at Saul built by Patrick in 432 and where he died on the 17th March is just a mile from the Saint Patrick Centre and is regularly described as one of the most important ‘thin places’ where heaven and earth meet in the world.
