Armagh Tours Home
To uncover the myths and legends of Ulster you must visit Emain Macha located 2km from the city centre, it was the seat of the Royalty of this province, such was its grandeur and strategic importance that it featured in Ptolemy’s 2nd Century map of the world. Due to this reputation St Patrick, the patron Saint of Ireland was drawn here in the 5th Century, this was his base in Ireland and he established a monastic school. His legacy remains with two majestic Cathedrals, both bearing his name perched on the city skyline, the old Cathedral on Sally Hill, the new one on Sandy Hill. We call this the Home of St Patrick and celebrate his history in many unique ways over the month of March every year.
