The Whiskey Still
Dromineer is one of the Shannon's most-visited places, popular with cruisers, anglers, sailing folk (and even walkers) alike. Unfortunately the harbourside hotel has now closed, but this characterful old place just up from the harbour has a big deck facing the water for fine weather, with patio heaters to extend the long summer evenings, and a welcoming a stove in the bar for colder days.
The Whiskey Still is always a pleasure to visit and, in the Guide's experience, the food is good.
Opening times vary, however, and it is wise to phone ahead to check opening/food service, especially off season.
