Cruit Island Holiday Homes Donegal
One of several islands in the Rosses, Cruit still has a small resident population which is added to by visitors keen to enjoy the beautiful beaches and wonderful walks which abound.
It also has an excellent 9-hole golf course which makes every use of the natural contours of the coast to provide both a test of golf skills and spectacular views at every turn.
About 3 miles in length and 1 mile at it widest point, Cruit lies roughly north-south along the Donegal coast and is connected to the mainland by a bridge so that you can literally “drive across the Atlantic”. Donegal Airport at Carrickfinn is only a 10 min drive from Cruit Island.
Cruit, moreover, is a tidal island so that when the tide is out twice a day you can walk across a golden stretch of sand (“Cruit Strand”) to the mainland. This rising and falling of the tide adds considerable interest as the views of the bay between Cruit and the mainland change continuously.
A road runs the length of the island from the bridge at the south to the north end with a few branch roads leading to the houses on the island. A pier lies on the more sheltered east side providing moorings for a cluster of small boats during the summer months.
