We are return travellers to Crockatinney Cottages and love the location and facilities here. We are always made very welcome by Roisin and her family. We can not fault the cottage at all. The cottages are an ideal location for all the main visitors attractions within only a short drive to the Giants causeway, carsick a rede rope bridge and... More

We are just back from a 3 night stay at Cuckoos Nest. We arrived on a wet windy afternoon and got the fire going. Everything was as described and we stayed in the first night. The next morning we couldn't believe the view of Fair head and Scotland in the glorious sunshine which remained for the rest of the stay.... More

We have just returned from a wee break away on the North Antrim coast. The accomodation provided by Crockatinney cottages ( we stayed at Cuckoos nest) was second to none and by far the most comfortable and luxurious we have ever experienced. The cottage was cosy, spotlessly clean, furnished and decorated to a high standard. We really appreciated the wood... More

Incredible staff, food, rooms and views. If you want a magical vacation and the most relaxing then come here. The place is close to the beautiful town of ballycastle and has the best views you will ever see. The staff are friendly and make you feel like you are important and family.

We have just got back home after our second visit to Crockatinney Cottages and must say that even though the weather could have been a lot better neither of us wanted to leave. Roisin had bedecked the cottage out with Halloween decorations, the cottage was welcomingly warm and after a long journey this was just what we needed. The views... More

From the moment you drive in from the main road, Crockatinney feels a place apart from the humdrum modern world we live in. We stayed in the Cookoo Nest cottage which was the cleanest and most well equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. The view from the patio at the rear is beautiful, taking in the hills, sea, Rathlin... More

Had a lovely two night stay in 'stone chat' cottage. When we arrived everything was set up beautifully for our arrival, the house was warm, equipment for a turf fire was left as well as the ingredients for tea and cake. The cottage was immaculately clean and tastefully decorated with a magnificent view of the surrounding area. There were leaflets... More

Myself and my family booked both cottages for a number of days over the Halloween holidays. We had stayed in one of the cottages previously and had a great experience, so were lookign forward to returning. We were so touched at all the extra effort Roisin had went to for the holidays- pumkins at the front doors and both houses... More

We wanted for nothing during our stay at the Crockatinney Cottages. Roisin made sure all the bases were covered, she knocked it out for six! We were on our honeymoon visiting Ireland and Northern Ireland. We are so happy to have stayed at Rosin's, and plan to do so any time we are in the area. How can you not,... More
