Gortconny Cottage is a recently renovated farmhouse in an area of outstanding natural beauty 2 miles west of Ballycastle town centre, it is set in a 3/4 acre site on the coast road.

Gortconny sleeps 8 people in four bedrooms, one 5' double bed, one 4' compact double and two bunk rooms. There is one large kitchen, dining living area with an open fire and one bathroom with electric shower. The cottage has been recently renovated and is well equipped including micowave and washing machine, but it is really for those who want to get away from it all and as such has no TV, wifi nor telephone, (mobile phone signal somewhere between the couch and the dining table).

The name Gortconny comes from the Irish - Field of the Rabbit - and you'll probably see a few during your visit.

"A Lovely Colourful Cottage"

What a fantastic place Gortconny cottage is. Myself and six of my friends stayed here for two nights and it was just delightful. So well equipped with everything we needed to make it a wonderful stay. The cottage itself was so warm and cosy, and in such a relaxed setting so even though the weather wasnt the best it didn't bother us at all to stay inside the cottage playing games and drinking copious amounts of tea. Would love to go back again someday for longer.
