St Brendan's Cathedral Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Built in the 12C on the site of an old monastery founded in 563 by St Brendan, the cathedral is renowned for its fine main doorway in red sandstone, a masterpiece of Irish Romanesque. The triangular gable surmounting it alternates human heads and triangles over six receding arches embellished by a wide variety of fantastic motifs and animal heads. The sixth arch was added in the 15C, at the same time as the tower, south transept and sacristy.
