We arrived by train to Cork and asked directions to our b&b, but unfortunately we hadn't been told about the very steep steps we had to climb however when we arrived there we were not disappointed, tea and cakes are at your disposal, the rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean, and the bathrooms are refurbished to a very high standard....

Amaxing views of the city, Third floor rooms are a bit of a hike up the stairs with luggage and our room was small and the walls thin (you could hear a mobile phone vibrating in the... More

Stayed a week in Gabriel house. Lovely guesthouse, cosy and warm. Beds very comfortable, guaranteed good night's sleep. Great breakfast, lovely variety, the pancakes are a must! The Gabriel house team and very friendly and helpful, my gripe would be lack of tv channels. Looking forward to my stay again

Stayed for one night at Gabriel Guesthouse bed and breakfast and the experience was very good overall. The responsible for breakfast, a lovely lady, gave us a menu and let us choose among a wide variety of dishes they cooked at the same moment. The accommodation provides free parking as well. The only downside is that the water pressure of... More

Very good stay in Gabriel's. Close to the train station but up a steep hill so you might want to get a taxi if you have lots of luggage. Accommodation pleasant, clean and a good breakfast menu. I enjoyed! I was a single traveller and was made very welcome by Kathleen (manager) and felt very comfortable. I would stay again
