Cruit Island Holiday Homes

Cruit is one of the main islands of the Rosses, now joined to the mainland near Kincasslagh. The Gaelic word Cruit can mean ‘a small harp’, or ‘a hump or a little hillock’. The island resembles a harp just enough to allow the more poetically minded to opt for that derviation.

Cruit is one of only two inhabited islands in the Rosses, the other being Arranmore, a big change from the time, just a generation ago, when most of the islands of any size were populated. Cruit is connected to the mainland at Belcruit by a bridge built at the time of World War II, and the bridge, some of the finest beaches in Donegal and the golf course combine to make the island a very popular destination.
