Short walk up a hill to the church. Lovely views. Super church , the stained glass in the middle is fantastic.!! Must be spectacular on a sunny day but still glad to have seen it, even on the cloudy rainy day we visied. Wish I'd had binocular to see it up closer.

The Catholic church with its high tower stands at the top of the hill to the right as you come out the front door of Hotel Newport and within easy walking distance The church is a lovely place of tranquility and well worth a visit.

The church is historically noted for the beautiful 3 bay stained glass window by Ireland's most famous stained glass artist, Harry Clarke. Harry had an extraordinary gift for understanding color and his use of blues, purples and other colors makes this window an exceptionally stunning work of art.

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.

10 O'clock mass was a very positive and enjoyable experience. Probably the best Folk mass music that I have ever enjoyed.

See the windows before you set off on your Greenway trip.Note two windows to either side of triptych dedicated by IRA to rebel leader Michael Kilroy. Fascinating.
