St Patrick's Well is located near Clonmel a short distance south of the main Clonmel, Cahir road. It is an old religious site situated in a sheltered glen where a large volume of spring water continuously wells up from underground. The church was built in the seventeenth century, but there are traces of an even older building. Inside the walls is the tomb of Nicholas White of Clonmel who died in 1622. At the centre of the small lake is a weathered Celtic Cross which dates from early Christian times in Ireland.

Have been to this place with a local who showed me his favorite place and it is a nice place. I think it's a great place for a picnic or just to sit there and read a book and enjoying the nature as this is a quite place. It shows an old cross in the middle of a river and... More

A must to see is this Well, stacked in history way back when. We were lucky to visit during the time the Warden was there and he has so much knowledge of the place and keeps it spotless, a sip of water from the Well was taken, so cold and fresh. It is said to have healing powers too! The... More

A true gem of beauty and peace. We stopped in for half an hour with family and everyone enjoyed the serenity. We only found it thanks to TripAdvisor reviews, so thank you fellow travellers.

We found the site and walked the steps to the pond below. In the center of the pond is a cross made of stone from the 600's. Next to the pond is... More

Found this through trip advisor and it was a very pretty place to see. Only stayed and walked around for maybe 15-20 minutes. I doubt I'd have driven very far for this but considering we were in the area it was a nice little stop.

Patrick's well is a hidden gem, beautifully kept with a natural spring well.(hence the name) There is mass said here every year on Patrick's weekend I think. Been going since I was small and its always kept clean and tidy. Bring a packed lunch if your going as it makes for a lovely picnic venue. Also a bottle to gather... More
