Owner description: 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.

This is a beautiful spot that has had special significance since early pagan times. Unfortunately, early large stone placement by monolithic ancestors was generally ignored during renovatin of thhe site in the 1960s. We were fortunate to arrive one evening and met a wonderful local expert that provided us with a wealth of information about the site, and led us to the man-made lake downstream, where the 2 million gallon daily water flow from the well ends up, in a lake built by hand in 17th century. The lake has a weath of easily observable birdlife, including nesting swans. If you see a man in an orange vest with a bicycle, tell him you heard about him from someone who appreciated his knowledge.
