It is a picturesque village with panoramic sea views across Blacksod Bay. Its long sandy beaches and safe bays are perfect for water sports such as surfing, kiting, sailing, swimming, fishing, boating and wind surfing. Doohoma has also stony beaches where children can pick shellfish such as winkles, mussels and limpets in safety. Oyster beds are also being cultivated which should provide a great attraction for the gourmet.
A scenic links golf course is located near Doohoma Head overlooking Blacksod Bay and Achill Island. The course consists of nine greens and eighteen tee boxes and is a stern test of golf with hole lengths ranging from 100 yards to 190 yards. This course is becoming ever more popular with membership numbers continuously increasing. All holes have a view of the sea and none are more than a few hundred yards from the beach. The holes form a horseshoe shape around the Doohoma football pitch. Hazards include sand traps and rough grass, no trees or water hazards. A practice green is available. No facilities exist on the premises but the course is located a short walk from The Sea Rod public house which has refreshments (bar food and drinks), a small shop, and restrooms for patrons. As this course is directly facing the Atlantic the weather can be windy and rainy even when the weather further inland seems fine, dress appropriately. Green Fees are EUR10 per day
