The hotel was easy to find with a large car park. The room was lovely and very big although would have preferred a double bed rather than two singles pushed together as it was a bit uncomfortable. The room needed a bit of TLC, scuff marks on the wall etc. The breakfast was nice with a wide choice from the... More

The people who work at this B&B are lovely and welcoming. We had nice conversations with both women at reception and the breakfast staff. My review is not a reflection of the wonderful people who work at this B&B. The B&B is clean and well kept. The breakfast was delicious and prepared quickly. The room we stayed in on the... More

It was good value for money given that it was close to the centre and included breakfast. Rooms are cosy size and bathroom is compact but functional. Customer service was good. Breakfast room couldn't accommodate everyone at the same time. They should have 2 sitting times to ensure that there aren't people waiting. The place was clean.

We stayed in room 10, didn't get much sleep due to the machines outside, we had to close the windows on the second night which was better, found the beds uncomfortable, and the shower seal was broken and the water went...

My friends and I stayed at the Gabriel House in December and we really enjoyed our stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's not far from Cork's city center, maybe 15 minutes on foot. It's on a hill, but unless you're in terrible shape it's not a difficult walk. Breakfast is very good and the service is excellent.... More

For many years when I visited Cork City I stayed at the Gresham Metropole Hotel but during two visits I had serious issues with noise keeping me awake at night so in 2012 I decided to try The Gabriel House Hotel. Gabriel House is a few yards downhill from St Luke's Church which is the most imposing building in the... More

Can not recommend this hotel highly enough. The staff were friendly and super helpful, the hotel was beautifully clean and the breakfast was amazing. We arrived early and Kathleen found somewhere for us to store our bags so we could go sightseeing, we were also given maps and some discount coupons with recommendations of where to go and how to...

Myself & my husband stayed here for a night as we were heading to a gig in the Marquee. We travelled by train and the b&b is a short stroll from the station, its also within walking distance of the main streets. The room & attention to detail was first class, not to mention the choice of breakfast. I would... More

We had a wonderful time staying here while we were in Cork. Kathleen and Valerie were super helpful during our stay. The breakfast was good, and they even provided tea and coffee through the evening. They have their own chickens, and ducks that wander the back of the property that you can feed. The entrance and parking lot are at... More

Stayed here for 5 nights to go to the Irish Open golf. From the moment I walked in I was made to feel welcome from Kathleen and all her staff. They are all warm and friendly and willing to help. The room was clean and spacious and had everything you need. Breakfast you had a wide variety, and everything was... More
