Lovely windows in the chapel of the cultural center. Also worth checking out the murals and gardens of An Diseart, which is worthy of supprt in all regards.

We were lucky enough to visit here on a sunny day, so the windows showed at their best. This is a well-done exhibit, and we enjoyed walking the gardens and labyrinth after our visit.

The stained glass windows are quite beautiful and unexpected in an otherwise unassuming old convent. The grounds were interesting, the other artwork also interesting but of uneven quality.

Go on a sunny day for the most exceptional experience. Even if you've seen dozens or hundreds of cathedral/church windows, this intimate setting for Dublin artist Clarke's windows is quite moving. His use of pink and red combination glass is striking. Well worth the few Euros entrance fee. Get the leaflet (included) for an explanation of the windows. Gorgeous and moving.
