This sombre, elegant and grand looking Catholic Church is the seat of the arch-diocese. It was also only built in the last century, yet every Galway tour will take you past here. Easily the most impressive building in a city that’s not exactly famous for it’s architecture, the church tries hard to fill every possible requirement of beauty – Romanesque naves, Spanish choirs, gothic windows and Renaissance towers. It worked too; the building is utterly beautiful. The more treasured items inside include:

  • A mosaic of the crucifixion by Patrick Pollen
  • Stunning stained glass
  • Statue of the Blessed Virgin
  • Stations of the Cross

If you think that this church was done being unusual and eclectic, you’re in for a surprise; the interior is superbly inviting and warm, quite the contrast to the outside; the church was built on the site of and old jail; and the parking lot outside is above and old graveyard. The whole possible care possessed by poltergeist feeling might not take long to sink in.
