The path that leads to the holy well area is flanked by a white wall and a tall hedge.


This holy well was a really nice surprise. We saw it while driving on the R557 out from Lixnaw.
We rarely saw such an organized well, with dozens of seats, canopies, prayer guides and so on.
While we were here we witnessed more than one person doing their rounds according to the tradition for this place. There are 6 stations for prayer and meditation before one is allowed to drink the well's water. There are 9 steps down to the well.
The area is accessed via a long path flanked by a tall wall and hedge.
It is said that this water has the incredible power to strengthen people's immune system, and to heal several diseases, such as cancer, cystic fibrosis, autism and cerebral palsy and that has been a holy place for thousands years.
We stayed here for a long time, the place was very peaceful and filled with the faith of the thousands people who came here.
