Reasonably priced. Breakfast to die for. Great host. Crosshaven is a must place to visit. There's so much to do in Crosshaven apart from Sailing. Fort Camden (Fort Magher) you have to visit. Incredible walks around Crosshaven. Thank you Cathy. Richard.

Kathy & Ronan were just the most amazing hosts! They went above and beyond to make sure that we (ten of us) were all taken care of, for the full weekend, at short notice.

My Mother celebrated her 85th birthday this weekend and as she loves Crosshaven, the family stayed here as part of her celebrations. Initially I had tried to book a hotel but there doesn't seem to be one in the immediate area so we booked a B&B with just a little trepidation. Any fears I had were absolutely unfounded as this...

Great place to stay, close to village and imenties, however do not meet Kathy in the local Cronins pub after a few drinks as she insults you and complains about your breakfast choices specifically white pudding. Ps Kathy I didn't turn my nose up at your breakfast as it was the best thing about staying at your place.
