Under the Robinia tree a ring of stones define a water pool.


This holy well is about 400 metres to the northeast from Toomour Abbey and Toomour Leacht, the latter is also known as the "Grave of the Kings" and this is where this well takes its name from.
The leacht and the church are in the townland of Toomour which gets its name from the Irish Tuaim Fhobhair, the Burial Mound of the Well.
The water pool is under a tree and is at the junction of two streams and is surrounded by some stones, a statue of Our Lady looks over it.
It seems that this well was dedicated to Christ the King.
