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.

Our host Kathy couldn't be more helpful and gave us lots of good advice about the local attractions.

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. We had beautiful views of Crosshaven marina and surrounds; fantastic ensuite rooms which catered for both those that required individual accom and shared accom. The house... More

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.

I was part of a fishing group of six from Harlow and we stopped with Kathy and her family for five days. They made us feel extremely welcome from the first moment we arrived. I am happy to say that this is by far the best B&B I have stopped in for a very long time. The rooms were clean... More

This is a well appointed and relaxed place to stay. The hosts can't be faulted, they are friendly and helpful. It's a pretty place to stay, and a great base for exploring. The rooms are comfortable, and if you're lucky the harbour view is stunning. We enjoyed our stay immensely, and look forward to returning.
