Lough Doon Fort | Welcome to Ardara, Co. Donegal

Accessible by boat, Doon Fort is an ancient ring fort on Doon Lough which is just 9 kilometres from Ardara. This stone fort dates back to 3000BC and has walls standing about 4.5 metres high in places and 3.6 metres in thickness at its base. On the lands of a local farmer, his family during the holiday season hire out boats to access the island. A very historical fort which even predates some of the pyramids!
