Wonderful example of early architecture with some fabulous celtic engravings. Cathedral built in three different centuriee starting in 1100s. Worth a visit, if even just for beautiful stain glass windows and high cross. Visiting times limited so check opening hours.

An undiscovered gem. It is truely a beautiful building steeped in history. It is not always open but was empty apart from us when we visited. Also home of high cross of Tuam. Hard to find parking close by.
