The Collegiate Church of St. Nicholas is a medieval church building in Galway, Ireland. It is a collegiate church and the parish church of St. Nicholas Church of Ireland parish, which covers Galway city. It was founded in 1320 and dedicated to Saint Nicholas of Myra, the patron saint of seafarers, in recognition of Galway's status as a port. The monumental work of Irish genealogy, the Leabhar na nGenealach was produced here in 1650 by Duḃaltaċ MacḞirḃisiġ (Dubhaltach MacFhirbhisigh).
Great concert today by Galway Contemporary Quartet. With free admission you would be a fool not to go. Will return.
The historic centre of Galway, welcoming visitors every day of the year, this medieval church dates from 1320 and makes for a perfect start to your Galway adventure.
Without doubt easily Galway's most historic building - and still in daily use 700 years after it was first built.
I adore how they have the cathedral renovated. Started with rearranged the seating layout giving the whole interior a greater spaciousness. Keeping the old things while replacing new ones where needed.
Definitely worth a visit, some wonderful artifacts in an interesting and historical space
Amazing ancient church. Dates from 13th century. Christopher Columbus prayed there before sailing to the new world.
Charming quiet little retreat for a few mins out of a rainy Galway. Dates back to 1320's. Give it a few mins out of your day.
