Ó Cíobháin suggests that this name may be a corruption of Doire na Féinne, a nearby townland. It is otherwise difficult to explain.   Knocknabrone Hill is the 1047th highest place in Ireland.

Rough ground, great views, shortish walk.
Short Summary created by simon3,  14 Jul 2012
This is a hill isolated by roads and properties and makes for a short though somewhat rough up and down walk. Walking in a dry period would be preferable though not essential.
One place to start is from the road near Lough Acoose on which there is a small amount of parking. Find a way onto the hillside such as the animal track at V7544285617 A. Access may also be possible from the B&Bs around V7718 8743 B
There is a spot height of 228 on a rocky bump and either side is equally good or bad. Generally, follow the east edge of the forestry plantations, using the numerous sheep tracks as there is no walking path through the occasionally dense furze. The top is around 1200m away which will take aournd 40 mins to reach and about 30 to return.
Note that the apparent minor road on the OS map leading north from L. Acoose is in reality a forest track festooned with an Ireland of the Unwelcomes sign.
The rewards for such a small hill are considerable. There is a huge view of the Reeks, the Iveragh penisula and even parts of Dingle. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/899/comment/5658/
