We recently spent 4 glorious days at this delight B&B. The hosts Monica & her Mother Norma were an absolutely terrific, couldn’t do enough for us, including driving us one night to The Anchor Inn for our dinner, then when the restaurant called they then brought us back.
We had a superb tastefully decorated large bedroom overlooking the estuary plus a nice modern bathroom with walk-in shower, the best comfy beds
Breakfast in the dining room overlooking the estuary & yachts was great, superb
cooked selection on the Breakfast Menu plus fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals & juices The little village of Crosshaven is interesting with a couple of Pubs & restaurants, we found it very easy to drive to different points of interests within the area including Kinsale, Cobh, The old Head of Kinsale
Highly recommend the Whispering Pines, & even though it’s a long way from Australia, should we make another trip to Ireland we would stay a week next time, relax & recharge the batteries
Thanks Monica & Norma for being such wonderful hosts.

Beautiful stay at the whispering pines accommodation. Super comfy bed, modern and spacious bathroom, top quality breakfast and super friendly staff and owners, esoecially Monica who couldn't do enough for us. Crosshaven village is a lovely village, the ideal place if you want to disappear and recharge for a few dags and only a 30 minute bus drive into cork city with buses going every 30 minutes. A nice break away for our anniversary.

I booked 5 rooms here for some colleagues who were in Cork on business. The booking was a little complicated but Monica was so lovely and helpful on the phone and did her best to accommodate us. These guys stayed at two other hotels on this trip and by all accounts Whispering Pines came out tops. The reports that I got back from them were all great. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, rooms were spotless, breakfast fantastic. Its always difficult when trying to book accommodation for other people and I use trip adviser a lot when I am looking for places. I would highly recommend Whispering Pines based on the experience of my colleagues. And I am now looking forward to visiting myself sometime.

Excellent facilities, nice view of estuary, very good breakfast, Monica and Norma are very friendly hosts. We stayed for two nights; bed was comfortable and the room was very quiet. If in Crosshaven, we would recommend this B&B wholeheartedly.

Superb from arrival to departure.

Monica and family were probably the most friendly, honest, helpful hosts I’ve ever met.

Amazing breakfast (husband chef), great fruit better than most hotels!

Beds comfy, bathrooms new, great taxi service on offer!

Would come back in a flash

This hotel is ideally suited to boat anglers visiting Ireland. Well placed for transfers from Cork airport which the hotel arranges with thier own mini-coach. The hotel has three of its own boats, all Aqua Star 42ft island wheelhouse vessels. The hotel is not luxurious but is clean comfortable has a good bar and restaurant and is well used to coping with both groups and individual anglers. Our 12 strong group spent six days there in September 2002 and 16 are booked to do the same in 2003 .

I would not recommend staying here unless you are an angler or have no other options available which we had not.We were in Crosshaven on a business project which had to take place on a particular date and other accommodations were full.

The person who checked us in was not very welcoming, the room was seventies style and there were obvious needs for repairs, the ensuite bathroom was more disappointing still.
We also got a view of the kitchen and decided there and then we would not be having our main meal here. The owners who we met at breakfast appeared very nice and helpful but it was not enough to save our image of the b and b.I got the impression in its day this B and B was impressive but over time maintenance appears to have been cut down considerably. Three appears to have once been a bar and indoor seating area where I imagine once great times were had however the bar appears to not open anymore. There is a nice conservatory to sit and watch boats at anchor or read but that appears to be it.

Crosshaven town itself which is a quite a walking distance away from this B and B is a delight to explore and there are several nice restaurants and plenty of bars there too and the views and the marina are something to behold. There are also a number of historical sites in the area on the other side of the town from this b and b's location.

Sad to say we will not consider staying here again following our experience.

This is a really nice b&b next to a river. The views are wonderful.
The village on the water is about a 20 minute walk along the river and has a couple of good pubs. We went to the Anchor Bar and Restaurant and had a fine meal, the views are great too.
The b&b rooms are good with excellent beds, the dining room has wonderful views and the breakfast was very good.
