Dromahair

Dromahair

Dromahair  meaning “ridge of the two demons” is locacted  10 kms (6 mi) from Manorhamilton and 17 kms from Sligo town, writes Martin Branagan.

Dromahair lies in the hilly north west of Leitrim amid some stunning unspoiled natural landscapes.

 

The “Sleeping Giant” mountain formation (comprising Keelogyboy, Leean and Benbo) is visible on approaches to the village, as is Lough Gill below the Slieve Daeáne and Killerry mountain.

 

The village itself is also idyllic, located on the banks of the River Bonet, which flows into Lough Gill.

 

Much of Dromahair was modelled on a village in Somerset by the Earl of Leitrim, and the central streetscape still follows the pattern set down by him.

Martin Branagan is a co-founder of LeitrimExperience.ie and is passionate about promoting Leitrim as a tourist destination. Under the LoveLeitrim banner, Martin is touring the county in search of its hidden gems.

A Dubliner by birth and Leitrim resident by choice, Martin can be contacted on +353 (0)86 173 8417 for all advertising queries.
