Since 1906 'Drom Cottage' has been offering families and visitors a peaceful, pastoral haven in the heart of the stunning Drom West area which is situated on the Brandon Bay opposite the village of Cloghane on the North side of the Dingle Peninsula. The property and fields directly around it are sheltered by old leafy mature trees to the rear, which you can particularly enjoy from all the bedrooms. Views on the ground and upper floor also include the owners very content grazing sheep, the mountains of An Com Ban, Glenahoo, Beenoskee and Stradbally plus the valley of Glenahoo in the distance. From the front door if you turn left within minutes you will arrive at a stunning quiet tidal beach that takes you around the Drom headland into the Brandon bay area. This area has wonderful views to the village and majestic Brandon mountain range. If you turn right from the house you can enjoy the fuschia lined country lane that within 15 minutes of a walk will lead you to the award winning Fermoyle beach in one direction and the the quaint local village of Cloghane for a very friendly welcome in the bakery/supermarket and O Connors pub/restaurant in the other direction. For al fresco dining there is a sturdy picnic table seating area alongside the main house. In short this property is a very loved family home offering every comfort, beach proximity, walks, mountains and amenities within minutes!

Mount Brandon dominates the villages of Cloghane and Brandon, a welcoming community with a rich heritage of music, language, and dance. There are numerous walks to lakes, waterfalls, creeks, beaches, cliff walks and of course the unforgettable walk/climb up Mount Brandon. The beaches are so varied from the secret beach ‘Tra Bhan’ to Brandon Bay, the longest beach in Ireland which starts in Cloghane and runs for 13km to Castlegregory and the Maharees Peninsula
Cloghane has two great bar/ restaurants serving pub food. Brandon is centred around the activities of the Pier, swimming, fishing, drinking, eating, dolphin spotting, socialising. It’s a very special place and in the summer months full of activity with kids and sometimes adults jumping off the Pier, hiring boats, rowing curragh’s (traditional Irish boats made of heavy canvas and tar).
Fishing in the area is superb. The Owenmore River flows from its source in Mullach, down through the valley to the estuary of Cloghane and into Brandon Bay. The river is bursting with salmon and sea trout. The estuary, reached from Cappagh beach and Drom on the opposite side along with Fermoyle Beach are perfect for shore anglers looking for sea bass. There is nowhere as social to fish though as the pier in Brandon where you can get a refreshing pint of Guinness and a crab sandwich while reeling in the mackerel.
