This B&B was by far the best out of all of lodging experiences while in Ireland. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful with advice on where to eat dinner and visit while staying in Cork. Our room was fantastic and very spacious with an incredible view overlooking the city. (Ask for room 13 if possible) We got a... More

The Gabriel B & B is in a perfect location to explore Cork and Blarney Castle. It has free parking and wifi. The room is guesthouse standard, basic but comfortable. Ensuite facilities. On the second night the heating system seemed to have been increased to cope with a nuclear winter. It was so warm and stuffy I really did wonder... More

We stayed at Gabriel House for a few days in January and found it perfectly matched our needs. There have been reviews which point out that it may not suit everyone with steepness of car park and stairs to climb but we 3 found the accomodation to be a very good and the experience was only amplified by the fantastic...

Like an earlier reviewer we were lucky enough to get room 13 - which has fantastic views over the city. Its not a 5 star hotel (and doesn't claim to be ...) but the room was large and had a massive 6 foot wide bed. The bathroom looked brand new with an excellent large shower and good quality fittings.

We only stayed here for 1 night after arriving from Cork Airport. Location was fantastic and only took us a short time to find it. Unfortunately, all 4 of us were crammed into one tiny room and it was really hot. The window was positioned directly above our 4 yo's bed and was broken, so it couldn't be opened. We... More

We booked the Gabriel House on Expedia for a bargain price after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. The room was very nice, bed comfortable and the bathroom a good size. This is more like a small hotel than a b&b. The breakfast was excellent with a nice buffet as well as a made to order breakfast. Tea making facilities are... More

I don't think I have ever been to an Inn or Hotel with such a feeling of WELCOME. The people runnig Gabriel Houes are warm and went out of their way to help and make us comfortable. We were tired, stressed, our luggage was lost. We found welcome words and a cup of hot tea. The rooms are comfortable and... More
