Drimoleague nestles peacefully on the banks of river Ruggagh, a tributary of the Ilen river, which flows into Skibereen. Drom-Dha-Liagh means the ridge or back of two flag stones. A few hundred yards from the village is the famine memorial on the siteof the famine pit. The old village of Drimoleague was referred to as Bothar Srufawn. It was situated on both sides of the rock road, due north of the present village. Drimoleague has a converted mill now an artistic centre worth seeing. There are some nice hill-walking routes near by.
