The folks at the tourist office directed us here. It was beautiful and quiet. A man who appears to be a caretaker stopped by and told us some of the story of St. Brigid.

The well of St Brigid is located inside a small grotto, the walls are covered in letters and cards that contain prayers, lockets, candles and even toys. All of which have been left behind by visitors who have come from far and wide in search of hope, peace or even forgiveness. It's a bit overwhelming when you first enter as... More

This was a holy well long before Christianity. This was one of those places where you best saw your face in ancient times. There is another holy well near Ballyvaughan, north of here.

A friend of mine experienced a personal healing here, so I made it a point to look for this well. Parking is not as easy was some would suggest. We visited two times and pulled up near the site one time, and parked in the pub parking lot next door the second visit. I was not prepared for the lush... More

We happened upon this online when looking for some landmarks to visit in the area. The statue of St. Brigid and the well is by the side of the road, I've passed it before without realizing it was there. This is a quiet serene spot, there is a small tunnel leading to the well.

The wells in Ireland are known for their healing powers and looked over by Brigid. You can tell visitors of this place believe in the healing powers by the candles, trinkets and photos of loved ones left behind. It's a special place, if you are near Cliffs of Mohr, I suggest stopping by, tossing in a coin or leaving a... More

A visit to the well if not for the spiritual weakling. The faith and love shown by the trinkets, prayers, and obituary cards is a bit overwhelming. When you go, you should have the right spirit and understand the sincerity of those who have gone before.

St. Brigid's Well was located on the side of the road, great access, getting around was relatively easy. Very special place, seeing all the rosaries, flowers, prayer cards, etc, that were left their by other visitors.

This is a lovely place but I wouldn't go out of my way to go there if time is limited. We needed to kill some time and this was a pleasant way to do it.
