The Renmore Garrison Church is associated to the Renmore military barracks. The chapel dates back to the 19th century where its build was commissioned by Colonel Hercy who considered the soldiers unpleasant march, especially in winter, into Galway town for mass as great hardship, considering the men would have to remain in potentially wet garments for the rest of their service. 

As a result, Col. Hercy, for consideration of his men, conceived the idea of building a chapel on the ground at Renmore, just adjacent to the barracks. There are a number of interesting features to be seen within the chapel.
