Dooish overlooks Lough Beagh and the Glenveagh National Park. Divis Mountain, overlooking Belfast, shows a different anglicisation of the same name. It is also possible that Dubhais is itself a re-interpretation of an earlier name, especially as other colours do not appear to combine with ais in hill -names. Something akin to Welsh diffwys meaning ‘steep slope’ or ‘desolate area’ would seem apt both for Divis in the Belfast Hills and to Dooish in Glenveagh.   An Dubhais is the 195th highest place in Ireland.

Approach from Glenveagh
by peter1  30 Jul 2018
Approach to Dooish from the South is very 'Doo-able'. There is a small building (possibly an old school?) at the Western end of the lake with an easy crossing of the river.There are a number of ways to get here, one of which is to cycle from the car park at the entrance to Glenveagh. This is around 7.4k. Another, shorter approach is from the West, down the track at the bend in the R254 road.
If using this route to Dooish, (see track 3872),I would recommend ascending/descending by the waterfall, NOT the route of ascent I used. This is very hard work and filled with potholes, boulders and long grass. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/187/comment/19994/
