Crockatinney Cottages and Crockatinney Guest House are family-run B&B and self-catering accommodations in Northern Ireland, near the Giant’s Causeway. We’re a short drive from the Iron Islands – or Ballintoy, as it’s known locally – a favourite filming destination of the popular Game of Thrones TV series. Many other filming locations – Winterfell, the King’s Road and others – are a short drive away.

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 may even hear the call of the elusive cuckoo when out walking. The cottages are within walking distance of Kinbane, a 16th-century castle, which remains one of the North Coast’s hidden gems. 

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, children’s 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.
