St. Brigid's Well, Loughrea
Galway Holy Wells Audit
St. Brigid’s Holy Well, Loughrea is associated with our Patron Saint and an early christian monastery c. C6th – C10th at Garrybreeda. The well is a natural spring well. Ribbons were once tied to a nearby bush, and at least one eye cure is associated with the curative powers of the water in the well.
Today the well is surrounded by a stone wall .A gate portraying St. Brigid’s Cross leads you to the well.
