History

An area of approximately 400 hectares (1000 acres), Dromore was established as a nature reserve because of the diversity and richness of its flora and fauna. This richness comes from the fact that it has many different habitat types. These include a river, lakes, turloughs, callows (flooded meadows), limestone pavement, fen peat, reed beds and species-rich woodland.

The reserve has historical and archaeological aspects. The 17th century O'Brien castle is still standing by the lake edge. There is also the site of Cahermacrea Castle, the site of Kilakee church, two ringforts and a lime kiln.

Limited access for visitors with disabilities.
