We arrived early on a Saturday morning in June, along with a couple of others, to find the Diseart Institute closed, so disappointed there was no access to Harry Clarke's stained glass windows. You would have thought that a strong tourist destination would have had even a short weekend opening slot. No opening times were given in the Kerry Gems guidebook.

Walking by one day and decided to pop in. Only three euros entrance fee so not expecting much. Lovely painting as you go into the entrance hall with faces of locals for the biblical scenes (used by painters for many centuries, I know but many of these people are still living in Dingle!). The piece de resistance is Harry Clare's magnificent stained glass. Absolutely breath taking. The painting of the last supper by American artist Eleanor E. Yates is also a must. A few other interesting bits and pieces including the Nano Nagle room, also by Eleanor E. Yates. Worth an hour or so of your time, especially if the gardens are open and the weather is good.

We came to Dingle in part to see these wonderful stained glass windows by Irish Arts & Crafts movement leader Harry Clarke. The windows are exquisite. The rest of the site . . . well, not so much.

The windows are part of a former convent. You can see some from the pictures, but they have an arts and crafts into Art Deco feel, with six scenes from the New Testament, such as the Sermon on the Mount and others. You'll want to admire the fine detail and style.

The entrance fee is reasonable, but make sure you get the guide (they basically lend it to you) with a description of each of the windows. My favorite was the one about Christ with the children. There isn't one of the passion, but there is one of the resurrection. Look at the detail in the faces, robes, and buildings in particular.

The rest of the building needs a little work. The rest of the artwork isn't up to the windows and one room in particular felt like it was used for cast-off furniture as well as an unremarkable mural.

If you are in Dingle or touring the Dingle Peninsula, this is worth a stop. There isn't much more than the windows, however.

We came to see the stained glass windows and were not disappointed. The chapel is beautiful inside but there is not much to see. The fresco was very impressive and the outdoor gardens are a nice place to reflect. They have a family rate and individual rate and worth the price to see the chapel.

We were very disappointed to have to pay 4 € pp to see some stained glass windows... Yes , they are nice , but should be free for all to see as it is mentioned in a tourist guide of the area.

If you're in town, pop in for a quick 20 mins to see some of the most impressive, unique and intricate stain glass windows by one of Ireland's most famous artists.

On a very rainy day we decided to have a look at these windows. The windows are stunning and certainly worth having a look. However, trying to find the ticket office was interesting as its not marked, the door was slightly ajar and lit so we went in as nothing else in the building was lighted including the chapel with the stained glass. Even the elevator to the upper floor where the chapel is was completely in the dark so difficult to find. Very strange way to operate a tourist attraction. I realize that it was a convent but no light on a dark day is a bit ridiculous.

The Harry Clarke windows are beautiful and well worth the 3 euro entrance fee. They are in a small chapel. During the off season, they are open on weekdays only. There is also a large mural of The Last Supper by Eleanor E. Yates from Colorado. The gardens are free to walk around.
