Holy Wells -  Monuments of County Clare
 
Holy wells are wells which are a focus of supernatural divination, cure or devotion on a regular basis. Holy wells come in many different forms, from a depression in a rock to an elaborate structure housing the water source. Votive offerings are left at many, and some holy wells are associated with a cure for a particular illness. Most holy wells are associated with a saint, and some have a pattern day during which pilgrimages are carried out. There are over 220 holy wells surviving in County Clare.
