Dromineer is a well known stopping off point for Shannon cruisers and its also a nice place to swim in the soft waters of Lough Derg.
To the left of the harbor is a sheltered area which is good for swimming, albeit somewhat stony. Go slowly as you wade in and be prepared to stand on stones. Once you get in the water is soft and fresh and you will have a refreshing dip. As for all lakes go slowly and be careful. You never know when you will hit some rocks or get entangled in weeds.
Facilities in Dromineer are good. Behind the swimming there are some seats and a car park. Back toward the harbor there are toilet facilities and showers, including one for people with disabilities. Well done to the County Council
Directions: Take the M7 from Limerick city, then take Exit 26. Follow the N52 signs for Tullamore until you come to the roundabout with a signpost for Dromineer. Take that left turn onto the R495 and in Dromineer the swimming place is to the left of the harbour
