I stumbled upon this gem in Kilkenny city quite recently and found the peace there to be quite stunning! Walking down the steps makes it all the more exciting as I felt like my inner child was going to burst before I reached the bottom step! There is a real sense of mysticism in the air here! The remarkable thing with this well is that it attracted me before I even knew its location. Let me explain! I usually park my car across from where this well is situated(however this did not dawn on me until I reached the wells location and looked across to see my car!) It was as if the angels transported me to a place that I could feel a magnetic draw to prior to finding it in the physical if that makes sense…. Have u ever experienced this? One day after work I was taking the usual stroll homeward when I saw a picture of this well in the window of St. Canices Parish Centre so I wondered in and asked the lady how to find it and she kindly directed me! Whats remarkable is that u would easily pass this little oasis as it is hidden by the surrounding cluster of houses. Ironic really when u think that it pre-dates the houses hiding it! However I must admit the fact that it is hidden is almost natures way of preserving its awe and beauty for the lucky visitor, for when u enter it u cant help but feel the peace enveloping your whole being! Unfortunately u cannot drink the water from here unless boiled first according to the sign on the gate so be warned! The area surrounding the well is known locally as Kennys Well, however the official name is ST. Canices Well! See link below for more info and how to find it! http://irelandsholywells.blogspot.ie/2011/09/saint-canices-well-kilkenny.html The picture attached depicts this precious site in all its splendour and glory, captured in the glow of the sun! Well worth a visit to recharge and rejuvenate! p.s dont forget to ask for a blessing before leaving!
