Our Lady's Well, Holy Island, Co. Clare.

Location –  Located just behind St. Mary’s church.
OS: R 649 849 (map 58)
Longitude: 8° 26' 50.98" W
Latitude: 52° 54' 50.93" N

Description and History – This is a very well constructed little well in a very traditional style that you don’t see all too often with holy wells in Ireland unless they’ve gone through a modern make-over. This seems much older but not as ancient as other things on the island. It’s very boggy around this well so I couldn’t get a good look inside even with my wellies on.

Difficulty – You’ll need wellies just to get close to this one.
