The village of Dromara nestles at the foot of the Dromara Mountains, from whose northern slopes the River Lagan takes its rise. It is a quiet place & conveniently situated.

Belfast is within twenty miles and it is ringed by the city of Lisburn and the thriving towns of Dromore, Banbridge, Rathfriland and Ballynahinch, with Castlewellan over the mountains and Newcastle a few miles beyond.
