About the location
CRUIT ISLAND, COUNTY DONEGAL
Burtonport 5 miles; Dungloe 6 miles.
Cruit Island is a small island in the Rosses region on the west coast of County Donegal which is linked to the mainland by a bridge. The island is best known for the Cruit Island Golf Club, a 9 hole course which is one of the most scenic courses in Ireland and is thought to be one of the best 9 hole courses in the world. Just over the bridge to the mainland is the village of Kincasslagh which lies between Cruit Island and Innisfree Bay, and is well known as the birthplace of the popular Irish singer, Daniel O'Donnell. The west coast of Donegal possesses some of the most spectacular coastline in Western Europe, and the area surrounding Kincasslagh is littered with fine sandy beaches. Take in the breathtaking scenery and location, visit the bustling fishing port of Burtonport, catch a ferry to Aranmore Island and see the cliffs and lighthouse, or discover the historical town of Dungloe; with its spectacular cliff views from the golf club to Aranmore, wild bogs, views of the bay and 130 fishing lakes, it is certain to impress. A short drive will take you to the beautiful Glenveagh National Park; its 16,000 acres are ripe for exploring, and encompassing most of the Derryveagh Mountains, it is a haven for walkers. A wonderful location, at any time of the year.
