The medieval castle of Dromana occupied a spectacular defensive site, and one that is no less dramatic today. The house perches precariously on the edge of a cliff above the wooded valley of the River Blackwater a few miles downstream from the town of Cappoquin in County Waterford. Two connected ranges were built along the bawn wall in the early 1700s and the resulting house formed the nucleus of an ambitious, important and highly original early layout that is illustrated in a beautiful map of the demesne, dating from 1755.
