Armagh, the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland – the seat of the Archbishops of Armagh, the Primates of All Ireland for both the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of Ireland, and the place of two Saint Patrick’s Cathedrals overlooking the city, is a very interesting place to visit, and not just for those following the footsteps of Ireland’s patron saint, Saint Patrick.
Whether or not you are exploring the Saint Patrick’s trail, you must visit the two cathedrals of the city. There is also a jewel of an old town, with striking Georgian heritage to be admired.
The visit to Armagh takes you to a place that has been there for a long time. It is first place for many events and people, and that sense of ageless beauty and heritage is what has the biggest impact on its visitors today.
