Watch: Drone captures stunning views of inside St Patrick's Cathedral
It’s been around for a long time, but you haven’t seen it from this angle.

ST PATRICK’S CATHEDRAL is one of Dublin’s most popular visitor spots.

The cathedral dates from 1191 AD, while the building on site has been there since 1220 – so there’s no doubt that it has seen it all.

Until recently that is.

The cathedral was paid a visit by a drone, which it captured some beautiful shots of the historic building in all of its glory.

Here’s the drone, operated by Sky Pixels Ireland, flying around the cathedral, filming the building at all its angles:

If you haven’t paid a visit to St Patrick’s Cathedral, now is the time as Heritage Week has a number of events taking place.

For example, today there is a free guided tour, a soprano and guitar performance at lunch time, a choral performance and organ recital taking place.

There is also a talk about the history of cloth production in the Liberties taking place this evening. All for free, so there’s no excuse.
