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.
