This little grotto has water that supposedly has mystical powers. It's an interesting little place if you're in the neighborhood off the walkway to downtown.

Follow a little path to this little Grotto and you'll find a statue of Our Lady and not much more. Nice little area for quiet reflection that has been there a good while.

This place isn't well advertised, but is well marked on the roads with brown signs so we decided to swing by and are glad we did. It's a peaceful religious garden. It's nice for a stroll around and is probably even more beautiful in bloom.

Not that much to behold, unless of course you believe in the Catholic magic of the waters. One of only a few sites to see in Kenmare, and it is located a few steps from Cromwell's Bridge, so it's worth the visit.
