Window with possible baptismal font to fore.

I was mistaken during the week when I described the beautiful castle as being a ruin but there is little doubt about this one! A beautiful window in a ruined monastery with an altar/baptismal font in the foreground. Where is it and what does it look like today?

 

The answer (which I will keep short as Flickr is breaking my heart today) is that this is Muckross Abbey in County Kerry....
