A portable BBQ is available for use.There is a large double garage with sink and electricity and pets can be kept here.

Northern Ireland region

Drumbo is made up of two Irish words. Drum meaning hill and bo meaning cow. A literal translation is hill of the cow and it is still this way to-day. There is an ancient round tower dating from Viking times in the church yard in Drumbo.

Drumbo is a very small select country area with affluent commuters travelling daily to their work in Belfast and Lisburn. The larger houses in the area are £1m plus homes.


The round tower dating from viking days is the main landmark in Drumbo, The beautiful countryside makes up for a lack of village amenities in Drumbo. Lisburn which is 5 miles away has a multi cinema, swimming pool and numerous eating establishments on a large site on edge of town. Drumbo dog race track is close by and offers an excellant night out.

Both Lisburn (4 miles) and Belfast city centre (8.5 miles) are excellent cities for shopping. Places recommended within 1 hours drive are Belfast Zoo, Ulster Folk and Transport museum, drive by ferry from Strangford to Portaferry and return by road on other side of Pennisula.

Giant's Causeway and Antrim coast is about 2 hours drive and is an excellent day out especially if coastal route is taken.
