The stained glass windows are absolutely fabulous..A point to notice is that all the pew ends have a different carved figure. A place of great peace. A booklet is available that will explain all the details of the windows

St Brendan's Cathedral is a treasure trove of Celtic art which we natives can take for granted sometimes. The stained glass windows are spectacular, and if you take binoculars and look at them, they are spectacular! Other works include the marble work and the carvings.
