Saint Patrick Centre

The centre is a new and exciting interpretative exhibition which tells the fascinating story of Ireland's Patron Saint. Through Patrick's own words a light is shone on the arrival of Christianity in Ireland and its development through his mission. A series of interactive displays allow visitors to explore how Patrick's legacy developed in early Christian times and reveal the fabulous artwork and metalwork which was produced during this Golden Age. The exhibition also examines the major impact of Irish missionaries in Dark Age Europe - a legacy which remains to this day. But the Saint Patrick centre is much more than a cutting edge exhibition. It acts as a hub for tourism in the area, and a focal point for a wide range of educational, religious and cultural interest.

The Saint Patrick Exhibition uses 21st Century technology to depict the story of Ireland's Patron Saint. Bold graphics, sculptures, video and audio technologies provide a very exciting part of the detailed storyline, designed to enliven your visit. Pay particular attention to the Sound Cones, the latest audio techniques provide our videos with an umbrella of pure sound within some parts of the exhibition. Look for the numbered 'target marks' on the floor and step onto these in sequence to hear details of what is being shown on the screens in front of you.
