Gifts from Croan

Our friend Mark at the Bridge Pottery has created some beautiful pieces of pottery which we have on display in the cottages. The pieces range from Jugs and Bowls to Clocks and Wall hangings.

All of these pieces are available for you to take away as a gift for a friend or for your own home.

Croan Cottages Postcards

 

Our friend, the illustrator Cathy Dineen, has designed an excellent postcard image for us.

We have put the postcards in each of the cottages so that our guests can send them home to family and friends.

If you would like some, just drop us an email with your name and address and we would be happy to send some on to you.

 

 

Cathy's painting of Croan was so good we also had it printed on some T-shirts and these are now available to buy.

The shirts are available in a variety of sizes and cost €15 each.

Mail order is also available.
