“Lovely walk, very peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Have visited Dooney Wood many times and am always struck by the peacefulness and beauty of it. I love looking out at the lake and there are always lovely forest flowers in bloom depending on the season. Gentle inclines (except for the rock itself) make this a lovely place for people of all ages and ability to walk.

“Childhood Memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Ticked this as a visit for couples as it is a lovely spot to go for a romantic stroll. Brings back childhood memories of when I went there with my parents on a Sunday afternoon.

“Nature and poetry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Donney brings back childhood memories of hearing WB Yates. And this poem was probably even more of an introduction to theology than the words of my grandfathers, both ministers.
