This beautiful cathedral church is hidden away and it was lovely to find a place in the middle of the busy city to have a time of quiet.

We were a bit disappointed by the size of it being used to European cathedrals. Situated in the heart of town you can hardly see it lost amongst the tall modern buildings. St Patrick cathedral is small but beautifully simple. The woodwork is so elegant and warm. We also loved the painting of Marie the mother of God.

Stumbled upon this as I walked to the Sky Tower. Hidden gem. I stepped in to light a candle and say a prayer. I ended up staying for a glorious mass. It was a celebration of love in observance of St. Valentine's Day. Beautiful cathedral of St Patrick and St Joseph.

The only place to visit when in need of a quite moment. Sea shore definitely will refresh, but this is unique as it makes you happy again.

This place grounds me. If you visit on a Saturday evening or all day Sunday, you'll hear lovely music and singing. Other times you can wander and appreciate the artworks and quiet spaces. Outside has a water feature that gently flows from the cathedral down through a pocket park with trees for shade and benches for resting.

Very close to the Sky Tower this church is tucked away surrounded by high rise buildings. Amazing to see an old building in this area. Churches are always worth going to see just

Would recommend visiting. The church is beautiful both the new one and the original church. It is amazing to see such an old church in great conditions. It took you into a glimpse from the past. The new church has beautiful stained glass. Worth taking time to see it.

Since we passed by the church we decided to have a look into the cathedral. It is actually a nice church but nothing special
