The idyllic spot of the holy well.


A nice and elegant metal fence encloses the area of a holy well at Killyons.
The well, unfortunately, was dry when we visited it, but it is very well mantained. This made me think that it is regularly in use.
On the southeast (125°) side there are 7 steps that lead to the place where the water should be.
The sense of peace at this site is total.
About 30 metres west-southwest is a church.
