Blackwater Bridge to Dromore Castle on the Kerry Way – 07 July’24







This is an easy casual walk which will take us from Blackwater Bridge on the Kerry Way out to Dromore Castle and we will return back to Blackwater Bridge following mostly the way we went out.

With views across Coongar Harbour and Drongawn Lough we will make our way through a wooded section to where the views open out across the stunning Kenmare River. Hopefully we may see dolphins playing in the river. 

Dromore Castle was originally built in the early 19th century by Denis Mahony. It was abandoned after a family tragedy, until work started again in the 1830’s.

The castle has changed hands several times and was more recently renovated to replicate some old castle styles.
