Read about Dromineerbelow
Dromineer is a small village in County Tipperary situated on the shores of Lough Derg on the River Shannon. Home to an 11th Century towerhouse, idyllic scenery, a public harbour and other facilities, it is a popular place to visit, especially for those out boating on the lake.
Fishing is a popular activity on both the lake and the nearby Nenagh river from Nenagh Boat Club, Lough Derg Yacht Club and Shannon Sailing.
The name Dromineer in Irish is 'Drom Inbhir', meaning the back or the ford of the river.
One of Dromineer's claims to fame is the Lough Derg Yacht Club, which is the third-oldest yacht club in the world.
Today, Dromineer thrives, popular with people from local towns, especially Nenagh, and even neighbouring counties such as Clare and Limerick.
Amenities in Dromineer include restaurants and pubs (The Dromineer Bay and The Whiskey Still), accommodation (such as the Dromineer Bay Hotel and The Dromineer Hostel) and a children's playground.
Dromineer is home to the Lough Derg Lifeboat, which is the RNLI's third inland lifeboat station and first inland station in the Republic of Ireland.
