Holy Well,Galway City

St Augustine's Well in Loughatalia (Loch an tSáile=salty lake) is located on the shores of Galway Bay, close to the Radisson Hotel. The county has hundreds of wells but this particular one is the city's most well known and most accessible. In the past it was known for providing a cure for eye and ear ailments. Note the coins, a votiv offering, in the well.
