Highly recommend. The girl that ran the place was fantastic. I think her was Valerie. She was very helpful. The breakie was very good too. Just outside the main area of cork but still only a short walk.

Check in was quick and receptionist was friendly. Room was very nice with a view of the town and the river. Comfortable bed, free wifi, small flat screen tv, the bath was immaculate, the only downside was I could find no plug for my electric shaver, so I used one in the sleeping area, and I found that the water...

Summerhill North climbs from the city centre and is within easy walking distance of both the bus and railway stations in Cork. From the railway station, cross the main road and look for a flight of steps offering a short-cut. The access for Gabriel House is quite steep, with a steeply sloping car park and a steep pedestrian path. I... More

I was greeted by the manager (proprietor?) on my arrival. She was thoroughly professional and suggested that I might enjoy the breakfast. I made an online booking so that wasn't an option. She described the offerings. They sounded appetizing and they were. If you're booking, be sure to include the breakfast. I had granola with fruit and yoghurt, good French... More

The hotel was well located just 500m for town centre. Staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel clean and comfortable. Our room was very comfortable with big bed and nice modern bathroom. WiFi very good. Even good to see the chickens and ducks in the hotel garden supplying wonderful eggs for breakfast. By the way the breakfast was really good with... More

Probably a nice place if you aren't on the ground floor. Decor neat and up to date. Totally ruined by having a room which directly faced the reception desk which was 1-2 metres away!!! I asked to be moved. Noisy guests coming and going and talking loudly until well after 2330 and phone ringing. Woken at 0730 by guests going... More

Stumbled across this little hotel which is a mix of old house charm and a large B&B and good value. Check in was quick and easy and the staff were friendly and helpful. I was travelling alone so expected that my roof top room would be something of a squeeze but i ended up with a spacious comfortable room with... More

We really enjoyed our visit to Gabriel House. We had the corner room on the second floor which was spacious and beautifully appointed. I liked the feel of the old house coupled with updated charm. The bathroom was clean and roomy and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was exceptional and the hostess really seemed to care about getting... More
