A view of the amazing setting of this holy well.


The Tobernalt holy well is located in a wonderful setting. There's a large car park, but the park with the well seems a world apart.
The well itself is a pool inside a round stone enclosure, the water flows out of it towards east and joins a larger stream to form a powerful flow of water with a small cascade further east.
Behind the well there's an area with an altar with a cross and two candle rails on its sides. Two stepped paths go up the hill behind the altar to reach two grottos. A mystical trail and a small bridge complete the place.
Simply amazing!
