“Very interesting”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

Amazing old church with very modern upgrades to the seating and chancel areas. THE WHOLE CHURCH IS STEPPED IN HISTORY. We did'nt see the pamphlet for the areas of interest until we had walked aroung it all. So was dissapointed I missed some important details.

“Beautiful Historic Church in the middle of Galway City”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

Once you enter the church you can feel the history oozing out of the walls. One could spend hours reading the old headstones and trying to decipher the writings many in Latin on the headstones on the floor of the church. The Saturday market outside is wonderful.
