About the Cathedral
The Cathedral is Dublin's oldest building, though much changed in the course of its thousand year history. Architecturally, it is famed for its Norman crypt and for the arcading of the nave which is considered to be the finest example of Early English in the country. It is probably both liturgically and musically the most ambitious of Ireland's Anglican places of worship. The peal of bells, which traditionally rings in the New Year in Dublin, was augmented in 1999 to become one of the largest in the world.
