Arrived in Cobh in the late afternoon without a place to stay and began our search. We located Gilbert's and we could not have done better. Ann showed us the penthouse "apartment" room and we were amazed by what we saw. Living room, kitchen area, spacious bedroom and separate bath - you could live there. Great place, restaurant downstairs and... More

It being a while since I've being back to Cobh on business, this time I had the good fortune to choose an overnighter in Gilberts. It can only be described as 5 star accommodation without the 5 star prices. Everything can only be described as picture perfect.

My daughter and her boyfriend stay here regularly and they invited me to come with them for the weekend. My room was fabulous. Very comforatable and beautiful decor. I had dinner in the Restaurant and the food was wonderful.I had prawns and my friend had the lamb. The wine was beautiful and we shared a brownie for dessert.

We were part of a very special celebration based at Gilbert's last week. Not only did we host a group of 65 people but we also stayed upstairs in the magnificent 5 star accommodation. Stylish and very comfortable. You would okay twice as much for comparable accommodation elsewhere. Ann Daly, proprietor, presented our group with an 8 course extravaganza for... More

Stayed in Gilbert's for a night last week, and it really is a fabulous little find. The rooms are outstanding - if I had paid twice what I did, I would still say the same. Large room, with massive bathroom. Everything finished to the highest of standards. The shower was a long walk-in one, and something I've never seen anywhere... More

I celebrated my Birthday this evening in Gilbert's and loved it. The setting was perfect - a warm Summer evening, yet we enjoyed a cool table indoors. The service was, as you would expect - polite, professional and timely. The food was fresh, tasty and mid-priced. We moved outdoors for a drink and enjoyed lovely views of the Harbour. Well... More

We booked a night with Gilberts while on our honeymoon. When we arrived on March 16th, we were told we would be moved upstairs since we were the only ones booked for the night.
