The trip to Douce is like going back in time, lots of roads with grass growing in the middle. Parked at W13389 62823 A (room for 6 cars), which is a lay-by off a forest road (keep right). Please bear in mind that this is a Coillte road so it may be closed for forest operations.
Once parked, head west down the road for 200m metres and through the gate, then cut down along the line of the forestry until you reach a fence and stream. You can follow this most of the way up to the top of Douce - the going is fairly easy. Should you feel even lazier there is a road (track) at W12957 62721 B which contours across the mountain and is an easy way up.
There is a trig point at the top of Douce and excellent views in all directions. You can choose to head back to the car at this stage or head onwards to Doughill.
For Doughill head west from the trig point until you see a fence, you can follow this much of the way to the top of Doughill.
One warning - if the visibility is bad, there is a gully in the saddle between Douce and Doughill that's not on the map, if you are right by the fence, there is a 12 foot sheer-ish drop which you could easily slide down if not paying 100% attention. It's is easily negotiated, (I jumped over the fence). Easy but rocky going from there there to the top of Doughill (see my comments on Doughill for a nice loop walk).
