There is one holy well in the parish of Dromtariff. It is situated in the townland of Dromtariff and in a field called the well field. People visit there every year on the sixth of May rounds are performed and prayers are said there. People go three times around the well and say a whole rosary which consists of fifteen decades in five different places. When the people are leaving the well they tie some bit of token such as a piece of cloth or a string to the limb of the tree over the well. They drink a cup of water from the well.
