Dooney Rock is made famous by W.B. Yeats poem “The Fiddler of Dooney”. It is located just outside Sligo town on the R287. There is a looping nature walking trail, 1.2km in length leads towards the shore of Lough Gill before leading up to the top of Dooney Rock.
At regular intervals along the trail are information posts giving details on the various trees and plants located in the area. At the top of Dooney Rock there are four viewing points that offer fantastic views of Lough Gill and the surrounding countryside.
