Visit the Beautiful Site of St Manchan’s Holy Well and Monastery in Co Offfaly

Calling all history lovers! Are you looking for something interesting to do on your next day off? Or do you want to experience interesting heritage sites outside the city centre? If so, do we have the perfect site for you to see! Make sure you visit the interesting St Manchan’s Holy Well and Monastery on your next day off! This fantastic little site contains the well and monastery that is known to be where St Manchan frequented, and to this day his lineage is traced back to the area.

What sites are off the beaten track in Ireland?

Thankfully, the island has a rich history and heritage, and many of the sites associated with it have been left untouched for many years. One of the best examples of this is St Manchans Well and Monastery in Co Offaly.

This site would suit a little more experienced adventurers, as it can often be difficult to find. Although, once visitors locate the Victorian National School, it is then close by. So, if you are looking for an interesting, curious, and slightly difficult trail, then St Manchans Well and Monastery is the perfect place for you to visit on your next day off!

  • Free admission.
  • Slightly difficult terrain.
  • Would mainly suit adults.
