The enclosed strip of land with the holy well inside.


St. Patrick's holy well is set into a nice and tidy context along a local road. It's a long a narrow strip of green land roughly shaped like a peapod.
One long side to the north of the area is defined by a stone wall, the other side is defined by a steel railing with a gate. The gate has a large steel cross to mark the holiness of the site. The railing has green shamrocks on top of it.
Inside there's a well house that covers the well itself with very clear water. At the bottom of the well several coins witness the devotion of people who visit the place. The opening of the well house is to the northwest (310°). Into the north wall, a pointed arch shrine with the statue of St. Patrick has been set.
