Time-travel. Impressive. Authentic. Highlight of Ireland.
A complete and total surprise when we stumbled upon this castle. In fact, it was seeing this imposing structure from the road, keeping watch over the bay like a medieval fortress, that caught our attention. Very quiet with few...More
We had seen the castle from afar. It looks ethereal and imposing in the edge of the lough.
We visited and it is much smaller up close than it looks from a distance. For the most it is ruined, but a well kept ruin at...More
This Castle has lots of history and, if you are in the area, make a point of calling. There will be no queues or crowds but, in this instance it is a great advantage. To have the Castle for yourself could be the order of...More
The ruins of this fort is in a remote part of Donegal county: winding, narrow roads, few signals. And it is deserted: there is no caretaker, or ticket seller, or shop, or any facility at all; it is a do-it-yourself place.
At the same time,...More
Went here on a tour of the area with a visiting family member, the tour of the castle was closed during our visit but it was still nice to walk around and read some of the information plaques around the walls.
Doe Castle on Sheepaven bay is hundreds of years old. Although a lot of restoration work was carried out years ago it still retains a lot of charm. The setting is great, surrounded on three sides by water when the tide is in. Has little...More
I enjoyed walking around the ruins of Doe castle. Go to the top of the Keep so you can get great views and see the historic exhibits about Doe castle. There is a parking lot adjacent to the entrance. There is also a small shop...More
We didn't have the opportunity to go inside, but we still really enjoyed wandering the grounds and taking in the buildings. We were lucky to be the only ones there on the day we visited and we really took our time going through the site....More
Car rental would be the best option but if that's out then you would probably be looking at a guided tour. Taxis are few and far between so I wouldn`t consider it as an option. There are some websites you could check out but... More
Car rental would be the best option but if that's out then you would probably be looking at a guided tour. Taxis are few and far between so I wouldn`t consider it as an option. There are some websites you could check out but TripAdvisor doesn`t allow links so I cant give them to you here. Just Google Donegal Tourism and you should be alright.
While you`re in that part of Donegal you should visit Ards Friary, Ards Peninsula overlooking Sheephaven Bay. Truly spectacular and only a few miles from Doe Castle.
Enjoy your trip, I`m sure you`ll have a great time.
