The secret spa of Cleighran More
Deep within St Hugh’s Holy Well and Sweathouse, the water runs orange – a mysterious miracle, or simply an iron-rich water source? All we know for sure is that this spot was the original restorative spa over three millennia ago. Though now crumbling, the originally cosy, cave-like structure of the Sweathouse trapped the heat of its occupants and the mineral-rich water, creating a sauna right here in the Leitrim countryside on the banks of Lough Allen.
If you have more time
If you prefer your water without rainbow hues, try a spot of angling in nearby Drumshanbo (pictured, image ©Oliver Dixon) on the craggy shores of Lough Allen and fish your worries away.
