I am a great admirer of Harry Clarke's work, and the examples here are some of his best. The colours are stunning and the Art Deco style is very arresting. Well worth the admission fee, whether you are an art aficionado or not. The Diseart Centre which houses the windows has other interesting features

Thank soonas

We went to see the fresco of the Last Supper bur were amazed and awe-struck with the incredible stained glass windows. It was first thing in the morning and the light streamed through so that we could really apprecia the craftsmanship. The color, the amazing ornamentation, the faces.... Absolutely awesome.

The Harry Clarke glass windows are beautiful and should be on your list of things to see. I rented the little recording for a couple euro and the explanations of the windows and other rooms at An Diseart were well worth it. It made the whole place ever so much more interesting than just reading the paper. I've been here a few times and go back each time I visit Dingle.

Follow the path past the Catholic Church in Dingle towards the garden and hang a right by the convent. Some great modern frescoes, but the real don't-miss treat are the chapel windows. Done in the '20's and only three Euros for admittance, they have Pre-Raphaelite influence and are simply unique and beautiful.
