Dromana lies adjacent to the majestic River Blackwater. It once formed part of the Villiers Stuart estate. Privately owned, Dromana House is just a few hundred metres from the picnic site. If you continue along the public road towards Cappoquin, you will travel through Dromana Gate Lodge, a single-storey Hindu Gothic-style gateway, built in 1849 to celebrate the marriage of Henry Villiers-Stuart. It is the only example of this type of architecture in Ireland.
