If you are interested in Holy Places, put this on your list. While we were visiting the priest came to replenish the candles. He spent a long time at the rock praying devoutly which colored our visit. Take time to visit each of the stations and then sit and absorb the history. Many, many earnest prayers have gone up here.... More

The Tobernalt Holy Well is a quiet place for peaceful refection and prayer. Even for the non-religious I believe it would be a wonderful place to step out of the daily chaos. For those inclined to offer a prayer it is truly a holy place with it's deep history. Please respect it's quiet and sacred space.

I have visited this place on many occasions and it is a very peaceful place to sit and reflect on life.

The atmosphere of early pilgrims and walking where Saint trod adds to the magical forest location on one of the loveliest drives in Ireland. For believers, the Fairy Tree & Well Waters are an added feature of this truely quaint spot.

This place is very special to the people of Sligo and beyond, It would appeal to religious and non-religious people who would just like to reflect on life or just take some quiet time to relax.

There was a very strange atmosphere here. A mix of pagan grove and catholic shrine. My wife did not like the creepy feeling the place gave her....

This is a delightful place and although it is designed for quiet contemplation, it will appeal also to non-religious people

This is a historic and monumental location. As a regular visitor the grounds are tidy and clean and the location has many interesting places to reflect and nourish our spirituality. The new wall helps to complete the grounds.
