Dromana House & Gardens
Dromana House is a true gem, perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking the strikingly beautiful, unspoilt river Blackwater. It is surrounded by a 600 acre privately owned estate with numerous woodland and garden walks. Several interesting historic follies are also to be seen throughout the grounds including an ancient outer fortification, boathouse and slipway down to the river. This period property has been lovingly maintained by its owners whose family have lived on this location since 1200, the present owner being the 21st generation. Dromana House offers a choice of self catering apartments with the perfect combination of old world charm and modern comfort, which are available for holiday or longer term letting. Located near the historic town of Lismore County Waterford, Dromana is less than 25 km from the sandy beaches of the South East coast of Ireland, from Tramore to - Ardmore, incorporating the renowned scenic drive along the Copper coast.
Dromana House and Gardens is one of Ireland's few surviving houses of distinction, and with over 800 years of its FitzGerald history, every room in the house, and acre of land could tell a vast amount of stories, that I'm sure would make just as great an impression as those told of Downton Abbey. Once the site of a medieval castle, Dromana House and it's stunning gardens is a great place to spend a few hours, and despite only being open three months of the year, visitors can and do arrange visits by appointment at other times. I found the gardens to be simple yet stunning, and a tour around the house, I could have done again and again, such is it's charm. If you want to know what it's really like to be The Lord of the manor, you can even stay in their East wing apartments, or alternatively in their river duplex property, which are both furnished to a very high standard.- Top 100 Review
