Doolough Valley
Pontoon, Co. Mayo
This beautiful pass between Mweelrea Mountain and Sheeffry Hills provides a great driving and cycling route and hosts a stone famine memorial.

You'll pass between the hills and by Doo Lough before reaching the famine memorial opposite Glenullin Lough. The memorial itself is a plain stone cross engraved with the words ‘Doolough Tragedy 1849’. A yearly walk is held along this route in memory of residents who died during the famine and to highlight the starvation of the world’s poor still today.
