Dromana House and Gardens

Three miles south of Cappoquin, the river Blackwater cuts through a wooded valley, set above which is Dromana, one of the most spectacularly located houses and gardens in Ireland. The gardens and woodland, havens for natural regeneration, extend over 30 acres including walks, many of which are looped. Herbaceous borders in the garden provide a continual splash of colour throughout the summer months followed by the autumn with its changing shades of shrubs and trees, many of which still stand after almost 250 years when the first Earl of Grandison planted 64,000.  The Bastion and Banqueting House are the main architectural features in the Pleasure Grounds which are reached by 3.5km of meandering paths through charming natural woodland interspersed with rhododendron, camellia, azalea, hydrangea, and other acid loving plants. Their own Rhododendron ‘Dromana 800’, is registered with the RHS and can be seen flowering in late May or early June.
