Tucked into an old convent off of Green Lane halfway up the hill in Dingle, you may be tempted to keep walking. Don't. Turn and go in -- work your way upstairs, and see these amazing windows. Remarkable color, amazing skill and beautiful expressions.

Not to be missed! Some of the best work by one of Ireland's greatest artists. Not as sentimental as most religious art. In fact, quite decadent in many ways, like Aubrey Beardsley.

When in Dingle, be sure to visit An Diseart at St. Mary's Church (across from Dick Mack's pub) to view these stained glass treasures. The color is unusual and spectacular in these windows, especially the greens and purples. The level of detail in the work...More
