Saint Brendan, the Navigator chose Ardfert to be the site of his monastery. Today you will find three medieval churches, an ogham stone and a number of early Christian grave slabs in the site. This is a fine example of an Irish medieval church.
Dating back to the 12th century examine the cathedrals west doorway which is Romanesque in design. Developments to the cathedral were continuous which can be seen with its magnificent 13th century east window and a spectacular row of nine lancets in the south wall. Two statues were added in the late 13th to early 14th century and are of ecclesiastical figures. These are mounted on either side of the east window. The battlements were added in the 15th century.
One of the smaller churches has been carefully restored and turned into a thriving visitors centre under the care of Duchas. Why not visit here and you will learn more about Saint Brendan, his monastery and about Ardfert.
