Beautiful cathedral... inside and out rising above the Galway skyline... well worth a visit ... even if your not religious the architecture is amazing.... very peaceful inside ... quite areas to pray and lots and lots of very interesting historical information and pictures about the church and its construction...

Gorgeous cathedral. We were able to catch part of mass, which was so special the Sunday before Christmas. The inside of the church is stunning!

I was offended when I went to the toilet and there was a .50€ request. There are numerous money request throughout the cathedral. Although it is a splendid structure, these signs take away from the spiritual aspect in being a place of God.

The Cathedral of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven and St Nicholas is more commonly known as Galway Cathedral. We were able to walk a comfortable distance to the Cathedral for Sunday Mass. The Cathedral is the largest Catholic Church in Galway. Although new it is quite beautiful and rustic. It was was completed in 1965 and is the last large church in Ireland to be made from stone. The dome can be seen in the skyline of Galway. It is located on Nun’s Island, on the west bank of the River Corrib near Salmon Weir Bridge. Crossing the bridge when going to the Cathedral is quite impressive. A must see.

We were surprised how new the cathedral is - it looks remarkable, I'd say even more inside than outside. :) Lovely gardens nearby as well.

Byly jsme překvapené, že katedrála je nová, ikdyž vypadá jako z 18. století. :) Uvnitř je ještě hezčí, než zvenku! Doporučuji zahrady v okolí.
