There is no record of an actual fort here, so the name probably comes from the imagined resemblence of the craggy summit to a fortress. For origin of name, see PNNI for info on Maol Chobha.   Doan is the 310th highest place in Ireland.

The view of Silent Valley
by Alex92  2 Jun 2014
Doan is a fantastic mountain when it comes to camping. I frequently camp on the summit with my aul fella and uncle. It has spectacular views of Silent Valley and Loughshannagh in particular, as well as the surrounding mountains. It is relatively easy to reach with a pack on your back, and there is a large, flat clearing on the summit which in my own personal experiences, has been able to accomodate four tents. Another advantage is that you are high up and out of the way of midges, which can be a nightmare when camping. However, the only disadvantage is that you may have to make your way down to Loughshannagh to collect water, though that isn't too much hassle.
