Although the church is a little austere on the outside it is really lovely inside. Quite a steep walk to get to it.

When you first look around the town of Newport you see the bridge and probably the next thing that will attract your eye will be the church with its high tower standing at the top of the hill. The church is a lovely quite place where you can enjoy a moment or two of quite peace and thought.

St. Patrick's Church is built on top of a hill overlooking Newport town. It is particularly famous for the fine 3 bay stained glass window by Ireland's most famous stained glass artist, Harry Clarke" 1889-1931. Harry's use of colour in this window is magnificent ranging through rich blues purples, pinks and various hues of red with gold and a range of rich greens. When the early morning sun shines through this window the church is suffused with a magnificent palette of gorgeous colours. There are other fine stained glass in this church but they pale into the background when compared with this final great
work of Harry Clarke.

Take a moment to enjoy this beautiful old church with some unique 'stations of the cross' and a decades old confessional. The Harry Clarke triptych of stained glass windows were an amazing surprise, I wasn't aware they were here but what a bonus! So colourful, detailed and imaginative, he was a master craftsman. The panoramic view from the top of the steps is magnificent, you get a real feel for the surrounding area. Definitely worth visiting whether you're religious or not.
