Galway Cathedral is breathtakingly beautiful. I could spend hours here just looking at the stained-glass windows. It is a peaceful haven in Galway. I will keep coming back each visit to Galway.

You can tell that this is a modern built cathedral. It’s very nice and the stained glass windows are impressive. There is a silver urn that you can help yourself to holy water.

Beautiful church. Recently restored. Nice visit. 2 euro donation requested. Lots of signs to tell you about history. Within walking distance in Galway. Nice if you like to see churches.
