“Best Short Walk in Mitchelstown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The 650 metre long path to Saint Fanahan's Well is entered from Mulberry Road. The walk is peaceful, easy and enjoyable with views of the Galtee mountains to the north. Beech trees line both sides of the surfaced pathway which is raised on a bank above the surrounding fields. The little woodland at the end of the path is approached over a pretty stone footbridge. The three little streams that surround the well give it a sense of being "away from the maddening crowd". There is an excellent sculpture here by Ken Thompson who is regarded as one of Ireland's finest sculptors. There are a number of interpretive signs explaining the history, traditions and natural environment of the site. All in all, if you're looking for something in Mitchelstown then this is the place to go.
