Creggan (; meaning stony place) is a large housing estate in Derry in Northern Ireland. It was the first housing estate built in Derry specifically to provide housing for the Catholic majority. It is situated on the outskirts of the city and is built on a hill. The name Creggan is derived from the Gaelic word creagán meaning stony place. The housing estate is very close to the border with County Donegal. The estate is often referred to locally as the Creggan.
