Things To Do

Doohoma

Doohoma

The Doohoma Peninsula is almost an island, being connected to the mainland of Erris by a narrow isthmus at Geesala through which runs the only access road. Geesala was the setting for J.M. Synge's celebrated Playboy of the Western World.

On the southern shore of the peninsula lies the bright picturesque village or clachan of Doohoma - in Gaelic Du Thuama or more appropriately Dumhaigh Thuama - the sounding sandy banks - for one can hear, almost any night, storm or calm, the sound of the Atlantic breakers crashing on the shore. Apart from the pleasant aspect of Doohoma itself, with its brightly painted cottages there is an impressive panorama of sea, sky and mountain on every side.

Walking and Cycling

Walking and Cycling

For those interested in Walking, Cycling or just sightseeing there is a ring road some twelve miles long, right round by the coast of the Doohoma Peninsula which is almost three miles square, with easy access to coves and shores throughout the whole length. The colours of the mountain sea and sky so beloved to the artist Paul Henry vary from hour to hour and the sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking in their beauty.

Traditional Music

Traditional Irish Music

Social life in Doohoma is lively and colourful. The traditional house dances and music have moved out in keeping with the spirit of the times into the two spacious local pubs The Sea Rod Inn and Tra Bui (which are more clubs than pubs). Set dancing and traditional music sessions are held every week both winter and summer intensifying of course at holiday times for the enjoyment of the visitors.
