St Patricks Well is a beautiful location to visit. Be aware of the many steps leading down to the well! But once you arrive there it is a truly magical place! Worth a trip!

Lovely place for an hour or so. Very peaceful and tranquil, but so much better on a sunny day - especially if you want to picnic. Kids enjoyed the visit, but a limited amount to what you can do.
