This heavily overgrown, stone-lined spring well is located a short distance West of Glenbeigh village. Traces of a small wall-surround survive. The well is dedicated to St. Gregory, the patron of the parish, whose feast day was the 12th of March.Rounds, which are a sequence of prayers said while walking in a specific pattern, were also carried out at the well on Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings. Each holy well would have traditionally been known to cure various illness.
