Dromdihy House was built in 1833 by Roger Green Davis in a classical style. It is visible high up on the hill as you approach the village of Killeagh near Youghal in Co. Cork. It is quite heavily overgrown inside and as is often the case if you look up you will see 'floating fireplaces', which remain long after the floor of the room they are in has gone. In one case the fire grate is still there.

Unusually the main entrance to Dromdihy House appears to be at the side rather than the front and it is flanked by four columns. At one time the land around the house was heavily wooded but most of this is now gone. When I was there I noticed an old toilet cistern hidden outside in the vegetation (see picture 19).
