Crockatinney Cottages offer an ideal base for those wishing to explore Ireland’s North Coast. Lovingly finished to a high standard they perfectly blend country and modern living.

Crockatinney farm (although not a working farm!) is owned by Francis and the late Mary McGinn and comprises Crockatinney Guesthouse, managed by their son Francis Jr and his partner Caroline, and Crockatinney Cottages and Stables, managed by their daughter, Roisin.

Within the grounds of Crockatinney, there is a 19th Century Famine Graveyard (untouched as a mark of respect to those buried there.) The original stone walls and gate remain to this day. The large area of surrounding natural terrain is full of wildlife – if visitors are very lucky, they may even hear the call of the elusive cuckoo! The cottages are also within walking distance of Kinbane, a 16th-century castle, which remains one of the North Coast’s hidden gems. 

A great place if you love to hike!

The cottages are set in acres of countryside and private lanes. Facilities include a fishing lake, wheelchair/bike accessible off-road trail, traditional stonewalls, 19th century famine graveyard, childrens outdoor playset, private car parking… as well as horses and donkeys! The cottages are named after the wildlife one can expect to find upon an exploration of the grounds here.
