Galway is the only city in the province of Connacht in Ireland and is capital of County Galway. The city is located on the west coast of Ireland. Probably the finest medieval town house in Ireland, Lynch's Castle is in Shop Street; it is now a branch of the Allied Irish Bank. The Church of Ireland St. Nicholas' Collegiate Church is the largest remaining medieval church in Ireland. It was founded in 1320 and enlarged in the following two centuries. It is a pleasant building in the heart of the old city. Its Roman Catholic counterpart, the Cathedral of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven and St Nicholas, was consecrated in 1965, and is a far larger, more imposing building constructed from limestone. It has a Renaissance style, with its dome, pillars and round arches.
