Can anyone describe the area of Dromore, County Down? It is one of 3 different areas I am considering for a 2-night stay to visit Hillsborough, Lurgan, Belfast, and the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum in Cultra.
One choice is to stay in Clanmurry, a b&b in Dromore. It sounds interesting in Alastair Sawday's guidebook. But I can't find any info on Dromore, though I see it on my map.
My main interest in visiting the surrounding area is that my beloved grandmother was born in Lurgan area, and then lived with her family in Belfast before emigrating to America. This will be one stop on our first trip to Ireland in July 2006.
Another choice is to stay in south Belfast (I am looking at Ash-Rowan Townhouse on Windsor Ave. though I haven't gotten a reply to my e-mails though.
And finally there is the choice to stay near Newtownards in a nice place called Edenvale.
After leaving the area we will have 1 night in Malahide and then we fly home from Dublin.
Thanks for any info, especially on Dromore area.
