Murrays Nile Lodge, the local coffee shop with a long history

image preview

Murrays is a friendly neighbourhood coffee shop with a long history. The building was originally built by the Murray family in the 1930s and over the next 60 years it served the community as a grocery shop and post office. There are many Galway people who fondly remember spending their pocket money on sweets and ice cream in Murrays! The shop closed in the 1990s but the family continued to live above it. In 2016 Doireann, great-grand-daughter of the original Mr. Murray, re-opened the business as a coffee shop and bakery.

The Collegiate Church

The Collegiate Church of St Nicholas of Myra is the largest medieval parish church in Ireland and its history is a kind of microcosm of the history of Galway. The earliest part of the present church dates from the beginning of the 14th century and includes the chancel with its three windows in the south wall. However it is possible that there was an earlier structure on the site. There is a legend that a man from the Aran Islands who died in 1580 aged 220 years could remember a time when the church did not exist but that just sounds a likely story. The records that exist suggest that the church was founded in or about the year 1320.
