Inspiring and little know about by the public until a few years ago. We found the caretaker Paudie to be most friendly and helpful. Certainly worth a visit.

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...More

We were there in November 2016 and viewed the windows about 4pm on a Friday. The hours may vary by season but I believe the hours are 9am-5pm on weekdays and 10am-4pm on Saturday. If you want to check online, look up An... More
