Doon Fort Portnoo

Doon Fort is an ancient ring fort on Doon Lough in the townland of Drumboghill which is 9km kilometres north of Ardara and not far from the coastal villages of Narin and Portnoo. It’s situated very close to the coast and the drive to the lough is beautiful on the small back roads. The famous Kilclooney Dolmen is located nearby.

This stone fort, dating back to 3000BC, has walls standing about four and half metres high in places and 3.6 metres thick at the base. It covers the island almost completely. Within the fort are steps terraces and passages.

The fort itself is on the land of a local farming family who until recent times used it as a walled garden. During the holiday season (summer) they have small boats available for hire to allow access to the island for a closer look.
