“Beautiful”
Review of Galway Cathedral

Galway Cathedral
Ranked #5 of 140 things to do in Galway
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 9, 2013

A beautiful and serene place amid all the hub bub.
As this is virtually in the centre of Galway city you would expect it to be crowded and loud, it is the opposite. Lovely place to spend a while.

We visited many churches while in Ireland in many cities. The Galway Cathedral has its own character. We attended Holy Thursday Mass. Went back on Good Friday. For as large as the interior is, the worship space is well done. Side chapels are well done. Interesting mosasic of JFK (realize he was our first catholic president but he was hardly a saint!).

I loved the stain glass windows and the convenient location to the shops. Actually got to see the President of Ireland and take his photo while we were coming out of the Cathedral he was walking and talking to the shoppers near one of the center streets very near the Cathedral. Amazing that there was no need for mass security.

This is a very impressive building.
It's also very tranquil.
Located just across from the River Corrib.
