Item image
Situated c. 5m from the N bank of the River Boyne at a point where it changes its course from SW-NE to NW-SE, and in the demesne woodland of Slane Castle. ‘Lady Well’ or Tobar Muire is recorded from the 1830s, and it is often said to flood. A pattern is still held there on 15th August, the only day when it is generally open to visitors. The well is circular (diam. c. 1.5m) and lined with stones.
