Tober na nduanairidhe,Dromnea


 This simple small rectangular well is surrounded by stone markers and is to be found just off the Sheep's Head Way. It lies in a small valley surrounded by bog and grasses, with views out to sea. The water is fresh, clear and cold. Its name, tober na nduanairidhe, means well of the poets and must refer to a connection with the Bardic School nearby in Farranamanagh.

This is a very peaceful spot in a small valley surrounded by boggy pasture. The air is filled with the sound of rushing water as the stream gushes out of the mountain at various points.
