We stopped in to see the glass, which I am told was installed by the renowned Abbey Stained Glass Studios of Dublin. Stunning. Be sure to walk the river walk nearby.

Stopped into this cathedral by a friend who was giving us a tour of Galway. The wood paneled ceilings, stonework and stained glass windows are magnificent. There's some beautiful mosaics lining the interior dome. It was a nice respite on a hot day to say...More

Cathedral used to be a jail but was converted to a cathedral in the 1960's. Floors are of green Connemara marble. A mosiac inside has JFK in it as he visited the town and is loved here.

Stunning for sure. One of the most beautiful Cathedrals so far. Not so over done as some Cathedrals can be. There is no signage on the outside, we found this interesting. It can be seen from most anywhere within the city.

This is a gorgeous cathedral right by the salmon river in Galway. The architecture and stain glass is exquisite and the atmosphere is calm and peaceful.

Wow!!! Fabulous Turkish and Asian food in the centre of Galway. When you are ready for a taste of eastern and middle eastern food, head to Pomegranate, just off Williamsgate Rd. Delightful staff, delicious food from a passionate chef, all you can eat for €9.50,...More

We happened upon the Cathedral after a short walk up the river from town. While is is only 60 years old, it has the feel of an ancient European cathedral. Worth the visit.

This was our first stop when we arrived in Galway. As we drove up, I thought from the looks of it, it must be built in 1850 or earlier. We found out it was built around 1962. My husband and I walked in and I...More
