If you are driving there - be warned their parking is on a hill! Very steep! If you are in a manual trasmission car be warned!! OK, other than that, it is very hotel like, plenty of rooms and a front desk, no elevator so if you are on the top floor you have to lug up your own luggage.... More

Such a comfortable overnight stay, with welcoming staff, a really lovely room, and a great breakfast to wake up to. The garden was lovely and would be nice in the summer. It's easy for the city centre going down the hill though a bit of a challenge coming back in the evening after a good meal and a few pints... More

like other reviewers we found this B&B was excellent. The staff were amazing so friendly and helpful they make you feel special and like you really matter. Nothing is too much trouble, we really cannot fault the service or the accommodation. Yes it is up a hill out of the city centre but you need walk off the substantial Breakfast!!... More

I stayed here 3 nights in two consecutive weeks. The spot is quiet and convenient. You get a nice view of Cork from high above on a hill. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff members are friendly and lovely company. You can grab tea, coffee, and snack at your pleasure in the dining room. I was satisfied in... More

You can't beat this B&B for hospitality, comfort or cleanliness. Kathleen was extremely helpful and friendly, the breakfast was lovely and the walk into Cork city takes only ten minutes at a casual pace. There is a very steep driveway in, not for the faint hearted, but parking on the street is free overnight.

Excellent breakfast, with a lovely view of the city, and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. However, the wifi signal was inconsistent. The B&B was near enough to the city centre, but the uphill walk back after a long day felt like quite a trek.

Thank you for your recent review,our apologies that the wifi signal was inconsistant , but once you notify to reception it can be reset, this usually sovles the issue and restores good signal. I hope this will not deter you from returning to Gabriel House kind regards Valerie More

I spent two nights here and I would definitely return. I was greeted by Valerie who was more than happy to offer all the information I might need. She inquired after my plans and provided bus schedules and restaurant recommendations. The breakfast was plentiful with many choices and the food was delicious. My room was spotless, the bed was comfortable... More
