Saint Patrick's Roman Catholic Cathedral is an imposing site, perched on the hilltop in Armagh and dominating its skyline. It is one of two Saint Patrick's Cathedrals in Armagh, the other being the Protestant (Church of Ireland) Cathedral. The church was begun in 1840, but because of the intervening famine years, not completed until 1873.
- The cathedral was designed and built in Neo Gothic style from pale limestone, with two spires
- Sculptured statuary forms a unique arch over the main entrance
- Inside there is a rich Austrian oak woodwork and an Irish granite altar
- The painted ceiling is ornate
- The walls are painted with rich colours that blend easily with the stained glass windows
