The last coastal village on the Sheep's Head Peninsula after Durrus and Ahakista, it lies under the 'Shadow of Seefin' - the area's highest hill and overlooking Dunmanus Bay and not far from Caher Mountain. Kilcrohane is renowned for its beautiful coastline, idyllic views and world famous hill walking routes.Cill CrochainCill Crochain is Gaeilge for Church of Crochan. Little is known about Crochan except that he is believed to have lived about the time of St. Patrick . Some believe he was from Kerry near Caherdaniel where there are two ruined churches named after him and a village called Kilcrohane. Near Helston, Cornwall there are small church ruins believed to be founded by a St. Crochan but there is nothing to confirm that it is the same person.There is a ruined church in the grounds of the cemetery in Kilcrohane, thought to be where Crohan built his cell.Kilcrohane todayUnspoiled Irish Holiday DestinationKilcrohane is a lively and vibrant seaside village whose population swells in the busy summer months.
