Doochary is a small village situated near the beautiful Gweebara Bay.
At the edge of the village, just a little along the road from the old fort, there is a Holy Well, St. Sarah's Well, the waters of which are reputed to cure skin problems.
At the edge of the village, on the Dungloe road, sits an old Ice House. The Ice House was used by a Landlord of the time to preserve fish (mostly salmon) caught in the Gweebara River which runs through the village.
The old road from Doochary to Letterkenny (drive out of the village and instead of taking the higher road to Dungloe, turn off to the right on the road signposted for Letterkenny) offers some beautiful scenery with many small waterfalls cascading from the hills there. Near the end of the road you can park the car and take a 7km walk down to Glenveigh Castle or just stop and enjoy a beautiful view over the lake at Glenveigh.
