Doon GAA club is a Gaelic Athletic Association club, founded in 1888. It is based in the village of Doon in County LimerickIreland. The club is part of the East Division of the Limerick GAA and has a tremendous record at underage level, but has yet to win a County Senior Hurling Championship. The club only plays hurling, but footballers in the parish play with neighbouring Oola. The manager is Austin Buckley.

The club was founded in 1888; it is one of the oldest clubs in the county. The club took part in competitions both in east Limerick and also in west Tipperary during the later years of the 19th century.

The club’s senior hurling team defeated Ahane on Sunday 18 November 2007 in Caherconlish, to become East Limerick Senior Hurling Champions, 2007. They once again received the Sean Cunningham Cup. Doon have twice reached the final of the Limerick Senior Hurling Championship, losing to Ballybrown in 1989 and Patrickswell (by only one point) in 2000. In 1973 a Doon player, Willy Moore, was present in the Limerick team which beat Kilkenny to win the all-Ireland hurling final. Doon GAA’s under-21 team reached the final of the Limerick Under-21 Hurling Championship in 2004 and lost, but returned to the final in 2005 and beat Adare to take the championship for the first time. Doon’s success at an underage level is outstanding, winning every county “A” title at each grade.
