Tobernalt Holy Well
+353 71 61201
Originally an important Celtic assembly site for Lughnasa festivities at harvest time, this well retained its importance with the coming of Christianity. A variety of cures have been attributed to its waters for centuries and even for the non-religious, this flower-filled shrine and waterfall is very evocative. During Penal times, mass was said at the adjacent mass rock, while a lookout was perched on the cliff above. If British soldiers approached, the congregation would disperse and pretend to be watching a football match. Contact the local tourist office for further information.
