Cruit Island House, Kincasslagh, is towards the north of the island, near the golf links, and has nine acres right on the coast. The ground floor has the kitchen and utility room, an open-plan sitting and dining room with Atlantic views, a study and four bedrooms, three en suite. Upstairs there's a playroom, office and music room, all in a floor area of 3,929 sq ft.

Built in 2010 not far from the cove and seven kilometres from Dunmore East, this detached house has extensive sea views. Downstairs there's a sunroom, a den, a living room and kitchen with a pantry and utility room. Upstairs there's a study and four bedrooms, two en suite and one with a dressing room.
