Galway Cathedral
Galway City, Co. Galway
Galway Cathedral, which was dedicated in 1965, was the last major stone cathedral to be built in Europe. Located in the heart of Galway City, the cathedral boasts an impressive variety of interior art, such as statues, mosaics and stained glass.

Galway Cathedral was constructed in the late 1950's, at a time when most similar buildings were using concrete. It is, therefore, the youngest of Europe’s great stone cathedrals. Dedicated to Our Lady Assumed into Heaven and St. Nicholas, it was designed by J.J. Robinson in a very eclectic style. It includes some Renaissance details mixed with the Romanesque and Gothic traditions.

The cathedral also boasts an impressive variety of art, including a statue of the Virgin by Imogen Stuart, a large Crucifixion mosaic by Patrick Pollen, rose windows by George Campbell and more.
