St. Nicholas’ Church

This ancient limestone building has been classed as the largest parish church still in use in Ireland today, and presents a living history of the city.


Spanish Arch

This arch is part of the stone fort we see today, which was constructed in 1584 to protect the ancient harbour of Galway, directly upstream.


Lynch’s Castle

This massive stone tower house, said to be Ireland’s finest surviving town castle, was one of the fourteen fine edifices noted in the famous 1651 Pictorial Map of Galway.
