It's different from many cathedrals I've seen because it's so young in comparison. Beautiful and very unique stained glass windows. Quiet and peaceful - not overcommercialized like some cathedrals.

If you have any interest in Catherdrals then Galway Catherdral is well worth a visit. You can even visit the burial crypt underground.

Wonderful cathedral to explore and photos can be taken respectfully(no flash). No entrance fee but donation is appropriate. Grand cathedral part of the grand small city of Galway, a place for many to worship and fine architecture to admire. Beautiful.
