“West Galway City”
Review of Galway Cathedral

Galway Cathedral
Ranked #5 of 140 things to do in Galway
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 May 2014

The area around the cathedral is lovely, the cathedral itself -nothing to write home about. Worth an after dinner walk, but don't be expecting St Peter's.

Very severely decorated. Does not have a real bell - only electronic one through the speakers. I am not impressed with this building at all.

I am not religious and went into the cathedral to look at the architecture and stained glass windows.

This is a working church, heavily involved with its congregation - not a tourist facility.

I found the atmosphere inside quite compelling, and sat and meditated for an hour. So comforting and relaxing.

Went to the 11am mass on Saturday and had a quite few minutes review the pictures from Pope John Paul's trip to Galway racecourse

The Galway Cathedral was very beautiful and impressive! They had a cute little shop where you could buy crosses, postcards and other souvenirs.
