It took some doing and a car that was up off the ground to find this. It has the story behind it but they have not made it a historical marker and easy to find. Fun to drive through country to get there.
The Well was signposted from the main road but no indication of distance. The road got narrower and narrower and then quite rough. Plenty of potholes which as long as you go really slow can be negotiated in a normal car. However, when you go past O'Sheas the road gets worse. We parked a bit further down from there where... 更多
This place is so beautiful, and the views are unparalleled. The history of Ireland's ancient Holy wells alone is enough to intrigue people, but remember to bring warm clothes and walking shoes, and get out of your car for a true Irish countryside experience!

The road eventually became rougher and rougher, becoming completely impassable with GIGANTIC potholes big enough to get stuck in or to trash the underbelly of your car.

It is a wee bit difficult to find and the road is pot holed but leave your car behind for a wonderful wander through the fields. Follow the road in and it is well marked. The well itself is very spiritual and one gets a feeling of peace there. Don't be put off by all the trinkets left by previous... 更多
