About St Anne's

Step off Belfast’s busy streets and into a timeless place of prayer to explore its history and to enjoy quiet moments of reflection in this beautiful place.

Belfast Cathedral, known locally as St Anne’s, is a Cathedral of the Church of Ireland, part of the Anglican Communion (Episcopalian). It is unusual in serving two separate dioceses, Connor and Down & Dromore, and so has not one, but two, Bishop’s Seats.
