Dromineer is a small village in the Shannon River region of North County Tipperary, on the shores of Lough Derg. Formerly called the Port of Ormond, it is a popular tourist destination, known for its harbour and marina.
Visitors enjoy cruises on the lake, overlooked by a 13th century tower-house style castle that once belonged to the O’Kennedy clan. They also enjoy sunbathing, windsurfing and water skiing, as well as visiting the attractions on nearby piers.
The village is also home to Lough Derg Yacht Club. Formed in 1836, it claims to be the third oldest yachting organization in the world.
