A Visit to Dromore


Located in the heart of county Down is the town of Dromore. Since the major Dublin to Belfast A1 carriageway bypasses the town, it has not seen much economic growth but has become a satellite commuter town.  This is the lovely red brick Market House which now houses the library and some community rooms.

In front of the Market House, the original town stocks have been preserved, but are not in use!







The clock tower has been nicely preserved.

From a different angle, looking across the square and war memorial.

  16. We have stocks in front of our Old Jail which has been renovated into a B&B some of the cells have been kept original for kids if they want to use them. It is quite a popular B&B in our town. Some great photography here. Great details.
