Dromiskin (historically Druminisklin, from Irish: Druim/Droim Ineasclainn) is a village and townland in County Louth, Ireland. It is situated 10 km south of Dundalk, about 1 km inland from the Irish Sea coast, and is located in one of Louth's most historical areas.
The village was home to a monastery for hundreds of years, once visited by Saint Patrick. This site for the monastery was picked as it is a local high point; it is also where a round tower was built and still remains. From the tower there is a view of all of Dundalk Bay and the surrounding countryside. Dromiskin also served as the home to the Archbishops of Armagh for a time.Archbishops of Armagh lived at Dromiskin House,The Lane.High King of Ireland, Aedh is buried in Dromiskin Graveyard, but no one knows where.
The village is part of the Darver and Dromiskin parish, Darver being a neighbouring village. The parish is bounded by the Fane River on the north and by the Glyde River on the south.
Since the mid-1990s, Dromiskin, like many areas in County Louth, has seen a marked increase in population. In 2006, 992 people were living in Dromiskin with 1,932 living in the electoral division.
