A must see. Found just before you get to Rosserk Friary. About an 8 minute walk from the car park, mostly on the flat. This quiet valley exudes history and there is a very spiritual feeling about it.

If you have time, walk down to the well and you will be visiting a little bit of Irishlife, whch is quickly disappearing (thank god says my husband). I found this area to be extremely moving and fascinating , in equal measure.

I visited here after Rosserk Friary. It is beside the friary. It is about a 10-15 minute walk off the road and there is car parking at the top of the walkway. The walk itself is in great condition and ordinary footwear is fine. When...More
