We drove to this Holy Well and stopped for a few quiet minutes. We stood by the spring that fed a small brook. It was lovely and peaceful.

Interesting place to visit as we were told to make sure to visit this location by Australian cousins. We met a couple of cousins at this site that we were not expecting to see. They were able to tell us of the history.

Get away for a quiet period of meditation or prayer. Tranquillity abounds in this shady piece of heaven.

Our rambling club had a brief but lovely visit to Tobernalt Holy Well recently. We found it a haven of peace and serenity. A very special place worth visiting.

Beautiful stop off on our way to donegal. Tranquil setting. Even if you are not religious it's a nice little place to sit and be surrounded by the sound of the trickling water.
