St. Nicholas' Collegiate Church is one of the oldest parish churches in Ireland. It has been a place of worship since the 14th Century.

In common with many mediaeval ports, Galway dedicated its church to the patron saint of sailors. According to recent research, Columbus visited St. Nicholas' in 1477.

Today, St. Nicholas' is still at the heart of the city's activities. The main Galway market is held every Saturday outside its gates. In addition to its regular services, St. Nicholas' hosts concerts throughout the year.
