To be truthful we never intended to stay here, it was a Saturday night and we could not find suitable accommodation in Cork. We booked at short notice based upon a recommendation on this site. Only 4 rooms which were exceptionally clean and well appointed, no cash spared on fittings and shower room of the highest standard and would not... More

Stayed here one night, it is necessary to 'check in' at the restaurant. First impression was restaurant was a bit untidy outside but OK inside, the entrance to the rooms, round the side, was pretty awful and would colour most people's opinion of the whole place, our room however was modern well furnished and the shower room was great with...

We stayed at Gilbert's for one night! Went to the restaurant downstairs to check in and were taken upstairs to our room (by a true gentleman, I might add!) The gentlemen was kind enough to walk us right into the room and would not let my wife carry a bag (and it was heavy!) When we walked into our room,... More

Bed extremely comfortable, bathroom with a very big shower was gorgeous. We had an evening meal in the restaurant. The staff are lovely and the quality of the food which seems to be all locally...

While on our recent mini break to Cobh we had an evening meal in Gilbert's. From the outside it looked promising lovely decor very romantic but the reality is very expensive food and only of an average quality and service is just a joke. We won't be returning

We stayed at this bed and breakfast after a day sight seeing in Cork. We were looking for something by the seaside out of the city for the overnight stay and we were not disappointed . Very well located next to the cathedral and within walking distance to the Queenstown and Titanic exhibitions. Rooms are large, modern, clean and well... More

Gorgeous hotel in lovely Cobh. The location is perfect for seeing Cobh. Stayed here with my sister and we had a fantastic time. The room was stunning and very spacious. I would highly recommend staying in Gilbert's. The restaurant was excellent also. Would highly recommend and we will definitely be returning.

This is our fourth time at this fab boutique hotel in the beautiful town of Cobh. We stayed in room #3 this time. I have stayed in this room before. Although it is on the inside of the building and doesn't have any views, who cares.... It is a smaller room than #4 but still beautifully appointed using the same... More
