The moss-covered stone above the well has a hollow in its base and a steep gabled roof has ben carved around the hollow.


About 17 metres south from the Killamery high cross is this hidden holy well.
The well is dedicated to St. Nicholas of Myra, his feast day being on December 6th.
It's a still pool of murky water in a rectangular basin at the foot of a round-headed stone with a hollow under its base. The west face of the stone has been shaped like a house with a steep gabled roof.
