Description: photo/image

Opened in 1965, the Cathedral of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven and Saint Nicholas is situated on the site of the former county jail (or gaol as it was known) which closed in 1939 and was notorious for its cruel treatment of prisoners.

Happily a brighter atmosphere now prevails in this, the largest and possibly the most impressive building in the city. The copper domed roof is visible for miles around and the massive site on which it stands is one of the largest in the city centre. Nearly all of the raw materials used in the building were supplied from the local area and is a fine example of Irish workmanship. Inside the visitor will find the cut-stone and wood carvings and wall paintings, particularly impressive. The style of the building is Hiberno-Romanesque which is unique eleventh century native Irish mode and pre-dates the Norman invasion.

About ratings

Ratings allow us to identify the best (and worst) of Galway. The rating process is quick, easy and anonymous.

How to submit a rating

Step 1: Click on the icon which best describes your level of satisfaction for each category.

Step 2: Enter your email address at the bottom left, and click the Submit Rating button. Your email is not used for any purpose other than to validate your rating.

Step 3: Enter your validation code which will be sent to you in an email message. Press the Send Validation Code button.

Can I change a rating?

Yes, to change your rating just submit another rating. The new rating will override any previous ratings.

Why do we validate ratings?

Associating a rating with an email address prevents cheating. Without this measure it would be trivial for someone to submit many ratings and bias the results.

The validation process works by sending a PIN to your email address which you will need to complete the rating process. Once successfully validated you can continue to rate other businesses without having to validate again for the duration of your browsing session (ie until you close the browser).
