Kildimo is a small village on the N69 west of Limerick city and close to the Shannon Estuary. This rural village is made up of Old Kildimo to the south and New Kildimo to the north where a new street emerged when the new main road was built.
There are a number of castles nearby including Cullam Castle, Ballyculhane Castle and Dromore Castle. Dromore is unusual in that it was built in the 19th century in the gothic revival style and its design is reminiscent of a fairytale castle, perched on a hill overlooking the Shannon River and Dromore Lake.
This castle was designed by Edward William Godwin as a residence for the Earls of Limerick. It can be seen through the trees from the N69 to the west of the village.
