Struell Wells

Struell Wells are a set of Four Holy Wells, located 1.5 miles east of Downpatrick.  The Wells date from before the time of St. Patrick. Pilgrims from all over the world visit the Wells, particularly on Mid -Summers Eve and the Friday before Lammas.

The site is traditionally associated with St. Patrick, who is supposed to have come fromnearby Saul to bathe in the waters.  St. Patrick's is said to have blessed the wells.
