Let us guide you to Saint Patrick's Grave and the Medieval Cathedral of Down before taking you to discover the High Cross galleries at Down County Museum.Description
Arrive in the ancient City of Down from morning to mid-afternoon for a warm welcome at the Saint Patrick Centre - the only exhibition about Ireland's Patron Saint in the world. This amazing multimedia presentation will take you back in time to the early 400s where you will listen to Patrick's own words as he narrates you through his life.
Then, hold onto your hats as you experience our incredible IMAX cinema helicopter flight to all of the places in Ireland associated with Saint Patrick. After the Exhibition join our Guide who will then take you through the beautiful wooded Cathedral Hill to visit one of the most sacred sites in Ireland - the Grave of Saint Patrick. It is here, under a massive granite stone, in the shadow of the medieval cathedral of Down that Patrick was buried when he died in Downpatrick on the 17th March and was later joined by the two other apostles of Ireland - Saint Bridget and Saint Columcille.
Your guide will then walk with you along the stunning Georgian Mall to view the most recent galleries of Down County Museum which include the magnificent Downpatrick High Cross dating from the 900s AD.Highlights
